MyFootopia Podiatry Practice is located in Hudson Valley, New York.
We are dedicated to providing house call services to homebound patients.
“Homebound” does NOT mean that a patient has to be “bed bound” to qualify. The patient is considered “homebound” under Medicare if her/she cannot leave home without “considerable and taxing effort”.
This means that if a patient has an injury or illness that makes it difficult to leave home.
if the patient:
Requires the aid of supportive devices (wheelchair or walker)
Requires the use of special transportation
Needs the assistance of another person
Has a condition that leaving the home is medically contraindicated
Symptoms of the disease process (such as pain, SOB or confusion) worsen when leaving the home
The patient can leave home for medical treatment (such as chemotherapy or dialysis) or for receiving therapeutic and psychosocial treatment (such as through a certified adult day care program).
