Paying For Home Health Care

Medical Equipment At Home

Next » « Previous


Health insurance that pays for home care generally pays for purchase or rental of the medical equipment necessary to allow you to stay at home.

If you have to pay for the equipment yourself, the cost may be a factor in determining whether home care is possible or whether you have to move into an assisted living facility, a nursing home or a hospital.

If insurance doesn't cover, you may be able to obtain the equipment for free through a local disease specific non-profit organization or a local community group.

When comparing costs to determine whether it is cheaper to rent or purchase equipment, include the cost of maintenance. Service may be included for free if you rent.

If you require infusions or other treatment that take time, find out if you can obtain a piece of equipment that allows you to move around while getting the treatment.
