What can I expect at my first home health visit?

The first visit may involve an in-home assessment of your situation. Your coordinator will contact you to schedule the first visit and answer any questions you have.

What services will my home health caregiver provide?

The services will depend on your health condition and specific needs. If you need assistance with daily tasks such as bathing or dressing, a home health aide may be helpful. If you have dressings to change, or need assistance with other nursing tasks, skilled nursing services may be needed.  

How long will I receive home care/how many visits will I receive?

The type of services and number of visits will vary by your insurance coverage, specific needs, and overall care plan. Your doctor and your care team can help you know what to expect when they schedule your first visit or during that visit.

Home Infusion

What is home infusion?

Infusion therapy treats health conditions requiring medication, nutrients, or fluids that can’t be taken by mouth. It can be used for a wide variety of serious infections, cancer, dehydration, or gastrointestinal diseases. The home infusion nurse will deliver medication through a vein (intravenously) or through the skin (subcutaneously).

What training does the infusion nurse have?

Infusion nurses have completed an accredited nursing program and have an active RN license. IHCS requires infusion nurses to have one or more years of supervised experience in infusion therapy. It also requires infusion nurses to be certified as CRNIs, the nationally recognized program that requires nurses to have at least 1,600 hours of infusion therapy experience within the past two years. 

Is home infusion safe?

Yes. Home infusion is as safe as, if not safer, than infusion services administered in an infusion center. An advantage of home infusion is that patients can avoid the inconvenience and potential risk involved with traveling to and from the center.

How long should I expect the infusion to take?

Infusion times can vary depending on the type of medication being administered, but you should expect an infusion to take somewhere between one half hour to four hours.

Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

How do I order equipment?

Your coordinator will help you get the right equipment on a timely basis.

How much will it cost/how much will insurance cover?

The cost will depend on your insurance coverage. IHCS accepts Medicare, which will cover a portion or all of the costs of medically necessary equipment when a participating health care provider orders it for use in your home. 

Do I keep the equipment, or must I return it?

If you are renting the equipment, you will need to return it. If you purchased the equipment, or if there are leftover supplies, you may keep them.

What kind of equipment is available?

A wide range of equipment is available but what you will receive will depend on your medical condition and needs. Equipment includes wheelchairs, hospital beds, canes and walkers, oxygen equipment and accessories, blood sugar meters and test strips, infusion equipment, and much more.

Personal Home Care &
Home Health Aide

What kind of activities will my home health aide assist with?

Your aide can help with dressing, bathing, eating, and other common daily tasks in the home. They may also help you with shopping for food, running errands, preparing meals, or doing laundry and light housekeeping.

What is the cost of home care assistance?

To learn about the current cost of home care assistance, please submit an inquiry.

Will I get the same home care staff each time/what home health caregivers will I get?

IHCS strives to have the same staff members care for you throughout the entire time you receive home care, but there may be changes depending on staff availability. Which staff will care for you will depend on your specific health condition and needs.

How do I start/stop receiving care?

If your doctor has ordered home care, home infusion and/or DME services for you, we will contact you about starting care. Many insurers will pay for a specific number of visits, which may determine when you stop receiving care. Your home care provider will review with you how long you can expect to receive care and how often. If you were scheduled to begin services but have not heard from your doctor or a member of our staff, you may call us at 844-215-4264.

What happens if I have an issue with my caregiver?

We comply with the credentialing standards of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Health, Department of Insurance and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
