What is Parkinson’s Disease?

One million people in the US suffer from Parkinson’s disease, a chronic and progressive movement disorder. Symptoms can vary from person to person but generally those with PD lose control over their range of motion which gets worse as time goes on. That being said, there is hope through medication even though some may not have symptoms for years after diagnosis or might never experience them at all! It’s important to know about these changes because they will impact day-to-day life and how you live your best life every day.

Some common Parkinson’s Disease symptoms include:

  • Slowed movement
  • Rigid muscles
  • Impaired posture and balance
  • Speech and swallowing problems
  • Chewing and eating problems
  • Thinking difficulties and dementia
  • Writing is difficult
  • Tremors
  • Constipation and bladder problems
  • Low blood pressure
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sexual dysfunction

Does Medicare Pay for Parkinson’s Home Care?

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.

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 with Parkinson’s disease 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 seniors with Parkinson’s 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 medical professionals 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 and hospice services.
