What is Home Health at Baylor Scott & White Rehabilitation
We provide professional medical care in the comfort of your own home. Whether you are recovering from an illness or an injury, our Home Health experts specialize in treating not just the patient, but the person. Our services are available throughout most of North Texas, including some more rural areas outside of Dallas and Fort Worth. Home Health is often more convenient, less expensive and just as effective as care you would receive in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
To be eligible for home health, you must be under the care of a physician who has determined that your health condition requires you to be homebound. A doctor must also certify that you are in need of skilled care in one or more of the following: intermittent skilled nursing, physical therapy, speech therapy or continued occupational therapy.
Home health allows patients to recover in the privacy of their home while remaining as independent and functional as possible.
Outpatient @ Home
If you still want the convenience of having a therapist come to your home even though you are not classified as homebound by your physician, you may be eligible for Outpatient @ Home. This unique transitional program is geared towards patients who don’t have a need for nursing, yet still want to receive physical or occupational therapy at home. Outpatient @ Home is billed to your insurance provider as an outpatient therapy visit and not home health.
