Covering the Cost of Home Care
Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 or older. It also covers younger Americans with disabilities, permanent kidney failure that requires dialysis or a kidney transplant (ESRD). There are 3 different parts of Medicare.
There are many choices available to today's Medicare recipients. To make the most of those choices, it is important to have a plan. If you are new to Medicare, P-B Health recommends that you start exploring your options 12-36 months in advance. Within 90 days of your 65th birthday, you may start the enrollment process with the Social Security Administration.
For more information on your Medicare options visit medicare.gov for more information.
Medicaid is a federal health insurance program administered by each state. It provides health coverage to millions of Americans ages 64 and under. It includes health services for specific individuals, such as low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. To do an application for Medicaid or for questions about Medicaid eligibility, contact your state Medicaid office.
With more than 18 million Veterans in the United States today, there has never been a greater need to provide services for our American heroes. P-B Health is committed to connecting our Veterans with the wide range of services available to them. Those services include home care and community based programs. It also includes long term care, nursing home or facility care when required by the patient. Eligibility for health care services is based on the need of the individual. P-B Health will assist in evaluating the need for personal care, skilled nursing care and other treatments. We can also assist with identifying services in your area. It's important to know that your financial situation, insurance coverage as well as other factors, all help determine your eligibility.
An employee or their dependents can receive workers' compensation benefits for an injury or death arising out of and in the course of employment. The employer or their insurance carrier pays for necessary and reasonable medical treatment, loss of wages during the period of rehabilitation and when documented, benefits for permanent disability. In the event that a worker is injured while working for an uninsured employer, application for medical and temporary benefits can be made to the Division's Uninsured Employers Fund (UEF).
