Home Health Plans for Highland County
Kimberly Farish, Vice President of Operations from the Verona office of Interim Healthcare, met on May 2 with RD Kathryn Coit, Social Services Director Sharon Sponaugle, and staff of the Highland Medical Center, to share her dream of opening a satellite office one day a week in the Monterey area.
She was seeking local feedback on the area’s needs. Kimberly is interested in offering all types of home health care in Highland and possibly Bath Counties, and in training local residents to be Personal Care Attendants. She explained that many individuals are not even aware that they have health insurance that would cover in-home assistance, particularly one specific farmers’ policy, and that home health is appropriate for more than just those who have had hospitalizations.
She plans to make some public presentations about the various services home health can provide and the various options for paying for these services, through Medicare, Medicaid, other insurance, veterans’ coverage and private payment.
