How do I get Home Health Services?

Ask your physician if you think may be eligible for home health benefits. If you are hospitalized, you may ask the hospital discharge planner to set up these services for you. You can also ask a nurse from our home health agency to evaluate your need for home care services and coordinate a care plan with your physician.
