What is home health?
In many cases, home health is the extension of care you receive after discharge from a hospital or rehabilitation facility. In some situations, you may already be at home and your physician believes you need one or more of our services to keep you out of the hospital or to monitor your progress. By sending medical professionals into your home, we can personalize the care we provide and customize it to your home environment. That’s what makes home health different: when it's difficult to leave your home for medical services we come to you and provide what you need in the privacy and comfort of your home.
Baptist Health Home Health Network has been one of the leading home health agencies in Arkansas for almost 30 years and we would welcome the opportunity to serve as a homecare provider for you or a loved one.
We currently have three Arkansas home health care facilities. Our service area is within a 50-mile radius of our offices in Little Rock and Arkadelphia, and within 35 miles of our Heber Springs office.
For even more information, we invite you to visit Baptist Health Home Health Network’s website or call the location nearest you.

Is home health covered by insurance?
The cost of home care facilities and services is often covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance. Traditional Medicare covers qualifying Home Health services at 100% with no cost to the patient. Other programs and plans have widely varying coverage criteria, limitations and co-payments. When we receive an order to start home health, we will verify the specific coverage of your insurance and inform you prior to initiating care in your home.
