A Home Health Agency is a Medicaid-enrolled organization that provides skilled nursing, therapy and home health aide services on a part-time and intermittent basis. Home Health services are provided for beneficiaries requiring medically necessary health services for the treatment of an injury, illness or disability.
Home Health does not include a provision of personal care services. Personal care services are available through Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Home Help program.
