Does Medicare Pay for Home Care for Stroke Survivors?

Medicare only provides coverage for “medical services” and medical items. Home care services provided by home caregivers are considered “non-medical” services by Medicare. Therefore, they are not a covered benefit of the Medicare program, and not eligible for payment. However, home care services may be a deductible expense for many on their federal income taxes.

After a hospital discharge, it’s not unusual for our clients to have both a home health care or hospice agency provide medical services, and home caregivers providing the “non-medical“ essential care and assistance that enables our clients to continue living in the comfort of their home.

  • Medicare covers inpatient hospital care, medical professional fees and other medical items for people who are age 65 or older. Medicare Part D also covers many prescription drugs.

  • Medicare will pay for up to 100 days of skilled nursing home care or inpatient rehabilitation under limited circumstances. However, custodial long-term nursing home care is not covered.

  • Medicare will pay for hospice care delivered in the home, a nursing facility or an inpatient hospice facility for people who are determined by a doctor to be near the end of life.

  • Medicare will cover the medical services provided by a home health care agency, such as a visiting nurse, physical/occupational therapy, and other home medical services after a hospitalization.

  • Medicare will not cover the cost of non-medical home care (long-term care) in the home, even though the services home caregivers provide may be essential to being able to receive home health care or hospice services.  

Is Home Care for Stroke Survivors More Affordable Than a Nursing Home?

The cost of care at any level depends on the amount and type of care needed. In most cases a home caregiver is much less expensive than the cost of a nursing home after Medicare’s payment authorization ends which can last just a few days up to a maximum of 100 days in a year. 

The median monthly cost of nursing home care in Sacramento Area is $9,946 while the median cost of a full-time home care aide working 40 hours each week costs 46% less at $5,330 for the month, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020.

Generally, home care is always less expensive except in special cases where there is a need for 24-hour care or specialized advanced treatments for prolonged periods.

Home Care for Stroke Survivors tends to be much more affordable than nursing home care, and remains a flexible alternative.
