Betty, they should be able to come from the local or regional visiting nurse association. The clinic should be able to make a referral.

Depending on the plan, your doc writes an order for a home health agency to send a PT or OT that they contract with, for a specific purpose, like setting up a passive ROM exercise regimen that the CALS implements, or training on "home adaptations" and/or the Hoyer, respectively. Your clinic may recommend a certain agency or two, but any in your network will be reimbursable, a point to remember since you may not agree with the clinic's faves. This is one way to get familiar with a home health agency that you might be considering as a hospice, if they do that, as well.
