Health insurance will pay for "certified" home health services. Services that fall into this category must be "medically necessary" and ordered by a physician. These "certified services" are short term. Once a patient returns to a certain level of functioning these services are terminated. Often this time period is sufficient to help the patient return to their "normal" level of independence, or to bring the patient to a point where they are able to access services on an outpatient basis.
