Does Medicare Pay for Occupational Therapy at Home?

Yes, Medicare helps pay for medically necessary outpatient occupational therapy if your doctor certifies you need it [3]. You pay 20% of the Medicare-Approved Amount and the Part B deductible applies.

What Does an Occupational Therapist Do?

Occupational therapists help you come up with a therapy plan and set goals made for your needs, limits, or disability. They can train you to improve your motor skill or hand-eye coordination, adapt your movements, or perform tasks in new ways.

-“At your first appointment, the OT will assess your needs. They may come to your home or workplace to see what you do and what changes you need to make...They might tell you to move furniture or get an assistive device like a cane or grabber. They can show you how to do daily chores better.”

What to Look for When Hiring an Occupational Therapist

Finding the best occupational therapist is easy when you call Angel Home Care Services. Here are some things to consider as you conduct your search [5].

Can They Help You With Your Needs?

Every occupational therapist will have a different specialty, experience, and training. Ask all prospective occupational therapists if they have worked with people who have similar challenges as you and what kind of treatment they offered those patients. Find out how often they will want to meet with you to accomplish your goals.

How Much Does it Cost?

Ask for a list of their services and fees, especially if you are paying out of pocket. Have them break down all their fees, including the cost of the initial assessment and follow-up visits. Ask if there are any additional costs you might encounter due to supplies or equipment that might be used during your occupational therapy at home.

How Do You Pay for Services?

Do they accept Medicare or your health insurance? Do you pay at each session, or will they send an invoice later? What payment methods do they accept?

Do You Need a Referral or Other Paperwork?

Your health insurance may require you to get a referral to an occupational therapist from your doctor. The occupational therapist may need you to sign a release form so they can get your medical information from other health professionals involved in your care. Find out if you can read and sign any paperwork before your first appointment to save time. We can take some of the hassle out of finding the perfect occupational therapist. Contact us today to get a free assessment.
