We share your financial concerns

Every patient has concerns about medical costs and reimursement. It has been determined that Home Health Care is substantially more cost effective than staying in the hospital, however, you will need to understand the HRS billing and insurance procedures.

A HRS reimbursement coordinator will serve as your advocate in pursing all the insurance benefits to wich you are entitled. HRS will process all of the paperwork for you and will work directly with all public and private insurance providers, including Medicare, Medicaid, and insurance organizations. Before you leave the hospital, you will be provided a preliminary explanation of what Home Health Care services your individual insurance provider covers. HRS will provide additional deals on specific costs related to your care and update you promptly if your insurance status changers.

Home Care: A better way to get well

When it comes to getting well, the old adage rings true: "There is no place like home." Time and again, patients have shown they do better, both physically and emotionally, in their private and quiet surroundings, close to family and friends.

Preparing to go home

After careful consideration, your physician has recommended home care for you. Your physician believes that you will benefit from returning home, and is confidential that you and/or a caregiver will be able to learn to administer your care or medication. HRS will help you understand your new responsibilities and work with you to complete that task and answer any questions that you may have.
