Accessing Home Health Services

Accessing Home Health Services

If you have been admitted to a John Muir Health hospital you may request a referral to our home health services. Patients of any hospital, acute rehabilitation facility, skilled nursing facility, or clinic (such as the John Muir Health Wound Care Center) can request services directly, or through a referral from a primary care physician.

If you are homebound or have difficulty leaving home on a regular basis, talk to your doctor about how home care may improve your quality of life. A doctor, family member, social worker, or nurse can inquire about initiating services by calling (925) 674-2560.

Paying for Services

In some cases, licensed home health care is less expensive than hospital or nursing home care. We accept most major health plans, most HMOs, PPOs, Medicare, and Medi-Cal. For your convenience, payments for services not covered by third party reimbursement, co-pay or co-insurance amounts can be made by Visa or Mastercard.
