I learned the hard way that my dr. assigned me to home health for 6 weeks. Home health discharged me after 2 weeks saying I was too far along in recovery and to go to an outpatient PT. They refused, saying I definitely needed their help, but Medicare has assigned Home Health so they would not get paid! Called Medicare and they affirmed it!!!! Be aware, I was left without any PT for 3 weeks. I was left guessing if I was doing things right and pushing enough--wasn't and ended up getting manipulation (and its complications)!!!!
