Mom doesn't qualify for Medicaid and, therefore doesn't qualify for ANY kind of home health care or any other kind of assistance whatsoever. I did, however, find out that her health insurance does offer in-home health care but ONLY if she's considered to be in hospice health care, having six or less months to live.
I asked her neurologist if he would be the doctor to make that determination (since he's diagnosed her as high-medium to low-severe Alzheimer's) but he said no.
SO... would it be her Primary Care physician and, if so, what would she base her criteria on in order for Mom to be eligible for hospice home health care? Does anyone know or should I call her insurance company? Thanks!!!
