Frequently Asked Questions

Nurse On Call

Nurse On Call is a Medicare-certified agency that offers home health services such as physical therapy, wound care, occupational therapy, post-surgical care, pain management, skilled nursing care, and more. Our staff can provide assistance, based on a physician's referral, for when you need additional support or skilled medical care in your home, like when you're transitioning from a hospital or medical care facility back home. 

If you have Medicare, your home health services may be covered up to 100 percent. Medicare Part B typically covers 80% of the expenses with a required patient co-payment of 20%. Medicare Part A should cover 100% if you meet the following requirements:

  • Home health services are ordered by your physician and deemed medically necessary.
  • You need skilled care from a licensed professional.
  • You need short-term intermittent care.
  • You are homebound.

Nurse On Call also accepts most long-term care insurance and private pay. We will call your insurance company to verify benefits and discuss them with you before starting services.

Home health might be appropriate if you've experienced any of the following:

  • Diagnosed with an illness
  • Change in your health condition
  • Changes to medication
  • Recently hospitalized
  • Fear of falling or feel at risk for a fall
  • Concerns about safety and independence at home
  • Require assistance to leave home
  • Need help with medical needs
  • Needs assistance with medications
  • Concerns for safety/mobility

For those who qualify, Medicare Part A typically covers 100% of the following services: skilled nursing visits (RN and LPN visits), physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work, and home health aide services to assist with bathing up to two times per week. Medicare B typically only covers therapy services; it does not cover any nursing, social work, or home health aide services.

When home health is started, if you qualify, your doctor will initially certify for a 60-day episode. You can be recertified after the initial 60-day episode should conditions warrant. 

An RN Case Management team will be assigned to you and they will work with you to coordinate visits. Aside from illness and personal time off, efforts are made to keep the same nurse and therapists with the patient through the entire home health episode.
