Your baby’s birth is only the beginning of your new life. Once you arrive home, you’ll have a few things to consider, and we can help you with all of them.
All patients qualify for a home visit after the birth of a baby. Grand View Health’s Home Care team of licensed and certified healthcare professionals will meet your needs in the comfort of your home.
Maternal newborn home care services are available to all maternity patients, including those who have delivered at facilities other than Grand View Health. A nurse will coordinate your plan of care after we receive a physician’s order.
Many health insurance programs, Medical Assistance and other insurers provide coverage for the home care services. For your convenience, our home care staff can provide direct billing to your insurer. Grand View Health grants consideration to each individual patient regarding his or her ability to pay for emergency and other medically necessary healthcare. We provide financial assistance to all patients who qualify under our Financial Assistance Policy (FAP).
