Telehealth Monitoring: Telehealth technology allows us to monitor your health conditions when our staff is not present. If your home healthcare plan indicates the use of telehealth, we will set up a monitor in your home to track vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, and weight.

Insurance and Payment

We work with Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, worker’s compensation, and many private insurance plans. Most insurance providers have medical and eligibility requirements you must meet before payment for services is authorized.

Our staff verifies your eligibility and will help you understand your plan’s benefits. At or before the time of admission, we will inform you about anticipated charges and payment methods.

Patients who do not have adequate health insurance coverage may qualify for financial assistance. This assistance is made possible through the United Way Organizations of Lancaster and Chester Counties, as well as by individual and corporate donors.

To find out if we participate with your specific health insurance or plan, please contact Intake Services at 717-544-2195 or 888-290-2195.
