Home Healthcare by Black Stone
Home Healthcare by Black Stone is Medicare certified to provide in-home care services. This involved skilled medical care, nursing and therapy services covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most insurances.
Skilled In-Home Care
Medicare reimbursed services are considered “skilled”, meaning there is an acute medical need for a nurse to tend to the patient, and the patient’s condition must be curable or made stable. Medicare reimbursed services are duration-specific and not meant for long-term care in the home.
Home Healthcare by Black Stone in-home care services are reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid, United Health Care, and most insurances. Medicare services must be physician ordered and meet requirements for reimbursement.
