Financial assistance for home care is predominately provided by health insurance plans, Medicaid, Veterans Services or private pay. Under most circumstances, financial assistance is dependent on the determination of a physician there is a medical need or a home care assessment by an agency. The amount of service can also be determined by the physician or home care assessment.
