Hi Stephenie, you called your MAC (which one and did you get a reference # or the name of the person you spoke to?) and they gave you this information? Did you copy and paste this from somewhere? Home Health is not based on the number of days or the information that you are referencing. When it first started back in 1965 it was based on some of that criteria, however, a beneficiary may have Part A only and come from a doctor, not a hospital stay, and receive home health benefits and stay on service for as long as they need to. As long as it is medically necessary and homebound, of course.
I do not agree as this is not what I have experienced in my 31 years.
I will still pass this by a consultant or two to see what their take is on this, too.
