Homebound = one who requires considerable effort and assistance to leave home, AND needs care on an intermittent basis. Patients may be considered homebound if absences from the home are infrequent or for periods of relatively short duration or attributable to the need to receive medical treatment.

Generally speaking, a beneficiary will be considered to be homebound if he/she:
A. has a condition due to an illness or injury which restricts the ability to leave home except with the aid of

  • supportive device (crutch, cane, wheelchair, walker)
  • special transportation, or
  • another person

B. has a condition which is such that leaving the home is medically contraindicated.
