Services

Home Health for the Stillwater, Oklahoma area - quality healthcare in the comfort of your home through a variety of services! A registered nurse is on call to answer your questions and address your needs 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Skilled nursing services such as assessment, teaching, wound care, dressing changes, injections, IV therapy, mother/infant care, diabetic care, cardiac care and more are available as needed. Some confuse Home Health with Hospice, but our team is focused on helping you or your loved one maintain health for as long as possible and this is not at all considered a near-death service.

Eligibility

Can all services be offered to you within a 50-mile radius of Stillwater? Can you benefit from private care assistance being available to you in your home? Would it give you and your family comfort to know all employees have been through extensive interviews and full background reviews prior to joining the Home Health team of professionals? If so, Home Health may be a fit for you! To be eligible for home care services paid by Medicare, you must (1) meet Medicare homebound criteria, (2) require nursing care or rehabilitation therapy for a short time or intermittently and (3) have treatment under a physician’s supervision. Home health services under other payor sources than Medicare require qualified home health staff to determine the benefits available for the patient.  Every attempt is made to provide that information prior to starting home health services.

Fees

Medicare Benefits cover the cost for home health services as “deemed reasonable, necessary, and ordered by your physician.” Medicaid, private insurance and private-pay patients are also welcome. Many private and group insurance plans cover home care services and, as a benefit to you, our employees research your coverage and advise you about which services your insurance or other source will help cover. Then, we work with private insurance carriers, Medicare and Medicaid to bill them directly for covered services.

Some new parents bring a newborn into the doctor's office for quick check ups. Other times, they prefer a nurse coming into the home so that's what the SMC WISHH program is all about. From infant care advice like bathing, safety and lactation to baby check ups on height, weight and bilirubin levels, your personalized visit is sure to be a great source of information and comfort during these new times.
