Who can benefit from home healthcare?
Home healthcare benefits anyone who needs skilled care to live independently at home due to an illness or disability: individuals who have acute illness or injury requiring high-tech care that can be provided at home, patients who require short-term assistance at home because of same-day or outpatient surgery, and many others who can benefit from intermittent services to prevent hospitalization due to a complication for a chronic condition.
Home Care Services works with you and your doctor to develop and manage your individual plan of care. You can receive Beebe Healthcare - Home Care Services following hospitalization through a case manager or discharge planner who will meet with you to answer any question you may have, or you may consult with your physician. Once you have selected Beebe Home Care Services, a professional nurse or therapist will do an in-home assessment and then coordinate your care following consultation with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals.
Who pays for home health services?
In addition to Medicare and Medicaid, home health services are generally covered by insurance, most private insurance plans and managed-care organizations. Beebe Healthcare - Home Care Services staff will research and verify your insurance coverage and obtain any necessary authorizations. We will bill the insurance provider for you, so you can concentrate on getting well.

Beebe Home Care Services today announced that it has been named to the Top 500 of the 2014 HomeCare Elite™, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. Now in its ninth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of agencies and highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare. Out of 9,994 agencies considered, 2,501 are elite.
The award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading products for home health metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent newsletter in the home care profession, Home Health Line.
