MEDICARE – To qualify for Medicare you must be 65 years or older. Medicare will be billed first and if you have other insurance it will be billed secondary.

MEDICAL AND HEALTH CARE SERVICES
In Your Golden Years provides contracted medical and health services through an accredited skilled home care and hospice provider. This provider is an Accountable Care Organization and is Medicare Certified and CHAP Accredited.
What does an accountable care organization do?
- Health homes and ACOs are responsible for providing the full range of healthcare services for the populations they serve. ACOs serve many Americans: Medicare and Medicaid enrollees, the commercially insured and self-insured employer groups.
- The providers comprising an ACO work together to improve their clients’ health, provide better care, and reduce costs while achieving identified outcomes. The participating providers share the savings generated by their good work.
Our partnership enables us to accept an array of insurances (listed above) and provide the best home care possible for our clients.
