Does Medicare or Medicaid cover caregivers hired through Kindly Care?

Regrettably, for Medicare, the answer is “no.” This is not specific to Kindly Care, but applies to the entire home care industry. Medicare does not reimburse for any long-term non-medical care at home.

While Medicaid (or Medi-Cal in California) does cover in-home non-medical care in some circumstances, getting those subsidies is tricky at best. For example, in California, all Medi-Cal funding for home care services is administered through a government-run organization called In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS). This has specific requirements that prevent their clients from using Kindly Care as well as all traditional home care agencies. Other states may have similar limitations that prevent families from getting reimbursed for hiring domestic employees.

If you are unable to qualify for benefits through your insurance or need to supplement those benefits, Kindly Care is the most affordable and legally compliant option on the market.
