So, you are thinking about having the health care service at home because one of your family members is having a certain condition. Choosing the right care and the right agency can be overwhelming, especially if you are completely clueless about the overall management. But don’t you worry, there are some ways and basic steps that you can follow if you want to be sure that you only choose the right service.
The Things to Consider
It is important to find a service agency that provides a guide or literature about the service, fees, eligibility requirements, and funding sources. You want to find a legit company that is able to provide detailed and clear “Patient Bill of Right” which can state the responsibilities and rights of each party, including the care recipient, agency, and caregivers. It would be better if they can provide other documentations like annual reports or educational materials.
You should be asking these questions:
- Do they have the certification?
- Do they have a business license?
- How long have been they in the business?
- Do they have all the federal and state license and certificates?
- Can they provide a detailed explanation about the health insurance coverage, such as how much the insurance will cover, how much does the patient have to spend, and such thing alike?
- Do they have an established and clear track record?
- Can they provide references?
Aside from those major questions, you should also ask them about:
- What types of service do they provide and would be willing to provide?
- Do they also provide specific services, such as occupational therapy or physical therapy, etc?
- Can they provide special needs that the patient has? Will they be willing to provide such thing?
- Can they provide the information about their methods in selecting, hiring, and training their employees?
- Are their employees qualified for the job? Do they have the certificates for their skills?
