Home Health Guidelines

    There are three questions to ask when determining if a patient meets Medicare’s homebound status criteria.

    Are the patient’s absences from home:

    • Infrequent?
    • Short in duration?
    • Requiring a taxing effort?

    Examples of “infrequent /short in duration” absences:

    • Medical Appointments
    • Attending a religious service or funeral
    • Occasional trip to the barber or salon

    Examples of "taxing effort”:

    • Requires the assistance of another person to leave the home
    • May require the use of a cane, walker, or wheelchair
    • Requires a high level of assistance in order to get into an automobile
