Most older adults want to age at home, but it is a common misperception that Medicare will pay for ongoing in-home assistance for activities of daily living after age 65. This leaves families seeking additional sources to pay for the in-home care they or their loved ones need.
Join us for a one-hour webinar covering the top six funding sources for in-home care: Medicare Advantage programs, Medicaid waiver, resources for veterans, long-term care insurance, life insurance programs and reverse mortgages. Learn the differences between Medicare home health and Medicare Advantage in-home care benefits and how to help clients apply various methods to pay for or receive reimbursement for in-home care.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Identify six funding sources for in-home care.
- Explain benefit differences between Medicare home health and Medicare Advantage.
- Evaluate payment and reimbursement methods for in-home care.
- Complete veteran enrollment criteria for home health services
