What is Home Health? At its basic level, “home health care” means exactly what it sounds like-medical care provided in a patients home. Home Health can include broad care given by skilled medical professionals. As the Medicare program describes, home health care is unique as a care setting not only because the care is provided in the home, but the care itself is “usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective” as care given in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
