Seniors who receive Medicaid can qualify for home health care financial assistance in Wisconsin. The state has a variety of aid programs specifically for the senior population. 

Medicare recipients may also receive financial help paying for home health care. The exact coverage depends on the type of Medicare plan and various other factors, including Medicaid status. State and federal programs may be combined to pay for home health care services so that Wisconsin seniors can age in place while maintaining a high quality of life. 

What Services Do Home Health Agencies Provide?

Skilled nursing services such as medication management, diabetes management and wound care are a part of home health care services. Home-based caregivers may also monitor and record vital signs and administer various types of physical therapy. Some seniors may receive housekeeping and personal care services along with home health care services, depending on their individual needs and coverage details. 

To learn more about what’s covered by home health care financial assistance, seniors and their caregivers can contact their local Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) office. Services and rates may vary depending on the home health care agency, which are located throughout the state.
