Physician Referral Form
Medicare covers home health services for individuals who are confined to their homes and in need of skilled nursing care on an intermittent basis or physical therapy, speech-language pathology, or where they have a continuing need for occupational therapy. To qualify for coverage, a patient must be under the care of a physician who certifies the need for care and that the individual is confined to his home.
A recent change in the law adds a new requirement to qualify for Medicare coverage. To encourage greater involvement of the physician in a patient’s home health care services, a new law requires that the patient be seen face-to-face by the physician, or certain non-physician practitioners working with the physician, before home health services start or soon thereafter.
