    Frequently Asked Questions

    What makes the Health Department’s Home Health Agency different from other agencies in the area?

    There are multiple agencies in the area that provide home health services.  We stand apart from those other agencies because we believe in the primary care nursing model.  This means that a single nurse is identified as the point of contact and supervises all other disciplines during the episode of care.  We believe this creates a better bond and trusting relationship between the patient and their caregiver.  Patient care is said to be elevated by having that single nurse overseeing the delivery of care and it empowers the nurse to deploy their best bedside care.

    How many home health visits can be made and reimbursed?

    There is no limit to the number of home health visits you can receive as long as there is a qualified need and the patient remains under the care of a physician. 

    What if I do not have insurance?

    We do our best to connect our patients with resources in the community and provide care for each of our patient's needs without the expectation of payment.  

    What insurance does the Health Department accept?
