How to hire a home health aide payable by Medicare?

If you are eligible for home health care and if you are also getting skilled care, such a nursing care or other therapy from the home health agency, the Original Medicare Plan will cover home health aide services on a part-time or intermittent basis. Usually, a home health aide doesn't have a nursing license and provides support services for skilled nursing care. These services include help with personal care such as bathing, using the toilet, or dressing. To get coverage from Medicare, the home health aide services must be part of the care for your illness or injury.
