Frequently Asked Questions

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 725-8742

While it’s not always possible to plan a surgery in advance, when this is an option, there are many advantages. Planning in advance can help you to understand how long recovery will take, which tasks you can and cannot perform independently and what type of medical and non-medical support you might need when you return home. Yes. Out-patient surgeries are now quite common. As a result, more people are returning home the same day surgery is performed. Having your home health scheduled in advance can ensure that you’re prepared to properly manage any pain or discomfort and new medications and care for your incision site. Essentially, home health arms you with the support you need to truly focus on your recovery. Home health services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, MediCal and commercial insurance plans. Salus case managers will help you to file any necessary paperwork and get your benefits approved so that you can spend your time focusing on recovering from your surgical procedure. Once you have returned home or when you are ready for discharge from the hospital, your Salus nurse case manager will visit you and complete a thorough assessment. This information in combination with your doctor’s orders and a conversation about your needs and goals will determine what services are appropriate. How often services are provided is based on your personal plan of care. As you continue to recover from surgery, your doctor may change your plan of care by increasing, decreasing or terminating certain services. This helps to ensure that all in home services remain beneficial and appropriate. Yes, the Salus Home Health team will work closely with your physician to ensure you have the support you need for a successful recovery. He will remain an important part of the team and help to guide the services you receive as well as develop and refine every aspect of the plan of care. Home health services offer more medical support and so, they do not include things like meal preparation and transportation. However, Salus’ integrated care model wraps you with the support you need after your surgery. Our case managers will discuss all of your goals, challenges and needs with you when developing your care plan, and we can arrange home care services in tandem with your home health services if that is appropriate.
