Best Choice Home Health Care provides daily and hourly services for the sick, elderly or homebound. Patients can pay out-of-pocket, through private insurances or through Medicaid/Medicare contract services established by Best Choice.
Best Choice has contracts with Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHA), Managed Long-Term Care Plans and others to provide our services to persons with Medicaid and/or Medicare coverage. Under these contracts, a registered nurse will develop an individualized plan of care for each patient, and then Best Choice will provide a Home Health Aide or Personal Care Aide to the patient based on their geographic location, language spoken and care needs.
Private Pay/Private Health Insurance
Services can be paid out-of-pocket directly to Best Choice or through private insurance companies. Following an initial assessment by a registered nurse, a personal plan of care will be created based on the RN’s and/or physician’s recommendations. Patients will then be assigned a qualified Home Health Aide or Personal Care Aide based on patient location, language spoken and care needs. A follow-up visit with an RN will be scheduled as needed. All our services have flexible hours and can be coordinated within 24 hours of the request.
