Medicare and traditional health insurance only pay for “skilled care”, this means that the care must be ordered by a physician, must be medically necessary, and must be monitored by a health care professional. In the case of Medicare, the patient must also be home-bound and unable to run errands, or engage in activity outside of the home. Medicare and traditional health insurance pays for very limited amounts of care, for very brief periods of time. Companion care and non-medical home care are typically not paid for by Medicare or traditional health insurance.
