Frequently Asked Questions

Who pays for Ascent Home Health services?

The cost of service varies on a case-by-case basis.  We coordinate billing with many payors, including Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies. We also accept private payment for services.

How do you qualify your staff members who would be coming into my home?

All nurses and therapists who visit your home go through a rigorous interview and screening process, as well as a background checks and license verification.  Our caregivers are regularly supervised and evaluated to ensure that you or your loved one is receiving the care and attention they deserve.

What does being homebound mean? 

This means your condition should be such that there exists a “normal inability to leave home” and doing so would require considerable and taxing effort. You would be considered homebound if you have a condition due to an illness or injury that restricts your ability to leave home without the aid of an assistive device (such as crutches, canes, walkers or wheelchairs), without the assistance of another person, or if leaving the home is medically inadvisable. You can leave the home as often as you need for medical treatment that cannot be provided in the home. Further, you are allowed brief and infrequent absences from the home for some non-medical reasons, such as an occasional trip to the grocery store, to attend church, or for unique family events.

What is “unskilled” or “non-medical” home care?

“Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care typically refers to companion and personal care activities such as bathing, grooming and dressing. It could also include medication reminders and assistance with ambulation. These types of services are typically provided by Home Health Aides (HHAs) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs).  “Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care is often sought by the elderly, individuals with disabilities, and those transitioning from a hospital or medical facility to home.

What is “skilled” or “medical” home care?

“Skilled” medical care follows a specific plan of care under the supervision of a Physician, Nurse (RN/LPN/LVN), or Therapist, and involves home healthcare services such as nursing care, physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapies, as well as social services. Skilled medical care in the home can help provide a comforting solution to residing in a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living community.

Are you available 24/7?

Yes. We can provide services up to 24 hours a day and there is always a local on-call manager who can answer your questions and address any concerns after hours. The on-call manager also provides around-the-clock clinical support for your healthcare team while they are providing care in the home.
