Here is some basic information to get you started:

Emerson Home Care is certified by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health as a Medicare/Medicaid service provider. 

Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and/or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers eligible home health services like these:
  • Intermittent skilled nursing care
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech-language pathology services
  • Continued occupational services, and more

Medicare doesn't pay for:
  • 24-hour-a-day care at home
  • Meals delivered to your home
  • Homemaker services  
  • Personal care

Emerson also accepts most private health insurance plans. These plans generally cover some home care services; coverage is often limited to skilled, short-term, medically necessary care, such as after surgery or an accident.

Many long-term care (LTC) insurance plans also cover home care.
