Some condi- tions can be treated on a part-time basis at home. This is why Medicare pays for covered services furnished by home health agencies that participate in Medicare. Medicare helps pay the health care expenses of almost everyone 65 and over as well as disabled people under 65 who have been entitled to social security disability benefits for 24 consecutive months or more. Part-time skilled medical or nursing services provided by partici- pating home health agencies may be covered under either the hospital or medical insurance parts of Medicare. In general, the services covered include part-time skilled nursing care, physical therapy, and speech therapy. If the patient needs any of these types of services, Medicare can also pay for occupational therapy, part-time ser- vices of home health aides, medical social services, and medical supplies and equipment provided by the agency. To get home health services under Medicare hospital insurance, you must have been hospitalized in a participating hospital for at least three days in a row. You must be confined to your home. The home care must be for further treatment of a condition that was treated in the hospital or skilled nursing facility. A doctor must determine that you need such treatments and set up a home health plan for you within 14 days after your discharge from the hospital or skilled nursing facility. Under Medicare medical in- surance, you do not need to have been in a hospital to get home health services, but a doctor must determine that the care is necessary and set up a plan for you. After you meet the $60 yearly medical insurance deductible, medical insurance pays the full costs for covered home health services. Under the law, Medicare cannot pay for drugs, full-time nursing care at home, and services furnished primari- ly to meet personal and family or domestic needs, such as general housecleaning, preparation of meals, shopping, or assistance in bathing, dressing, or other personal -needs, Copies of each week's Glenville Democrat are available at Community Super Market, Sum- mers Pharmacy, The Grill, Conrad's Motel, GSC Bookstore, Pioneer Grocery, Superette, Go-Mart Food Store, The Towne Bookstore, and Gilmer Graphics, Inc.
