- Medicare Advantage plans have authorization rules and may impose limits on the type of care and number of visits provided.
- Medicaid covers home healthcare but requires prior authorization after initial visits.
- Commercial Insurance plans provide varying amounts of coverage for home healthcare and many have specific deductibles, copays and service limits.
- State entitlement programs such as the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders pay for certain home healthcare services.

VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice’s Insurance Coordinators quickly research insurance coverage status when a patient is referred. A member of our staff will inform patients of estimated out-of-pocket costs. We also recommend that patients call their insurance company to confirm the information that we have been given.
