Home Health Care FAQ

Will Medicare or my insurance cover home health care services?
Home health may be covered 100% by Medicare for those who qualify, and we accept most forms of insurance. Part of the admission process includes verification of insurance. Our team is happy to help answer your financial and insurance questions. You can contact us at 610-776-3364.

Do I need a referral from my primary health care provider to receive home health care services from Good Shepherd?
Yes. If you or a loved one is interested in receiving home health care services, speak with your primary care physician, nurse practitioner or other health care provider. You can also talk to someone on our team to find out if home health might be right for you.

Do you provide home health care services for someone that resides in an assisted living facility?
Yes, we do. We’ll work closely with your physician or other authorized practitioner to develop and strictly follow your plan of care.

What is the difference between home health care services and personal home care services?
Home health is skilled clinical care ordered by a health care provider. These services might include things like nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy and are designed to help you manage your condition and regain your independence after illness, injury or surgery.

Personal home care assistance involves non-clinical services, such as help around the house, transportation, bathing and light meal preparation.
