Home health care (HHC) is a service that can be received in the privacy of your own home. HHC can support earlier discharge from inpatient settings or prevent hospitalization in the first place, thereby improving health and saving money for you and for Medicare.
Examples of home health services you may receive:
Patient and caregiver education
Intravenous or nutrition therapy
Monitoring serious illness and unstable health status

Treat illness or injury
Regain your independence
