Starting a non-medical home care business is not a get-rich scheme, but a great way to earn a solid income helping seniors live an independent life. These services are often paid by client’s private funds. But starting in 2019, CMS will allow Medicare Advantage plans to pay for non-skilled care at home to help keep patients out of the hospital.
Healthcare providers have already made great strides as partners in Medicare Advantage contracts, and adding non-skilled services opens the door to the growing Medicare Advantage population. This will allow patients to recover in the comfort of their own home and offer private duty companies a new source of income by contracting with insurances that offer this new benefit.
