Because there's is no place like home.
Northstar Nursing is committed to improving the health and quality of life of the clients we serve.
North Star Nursing is a licensed Class A Home Care Provider. We provide Personal Care Assistants, Private Duty Nurses, Respite Caregivers and Homemakers. We are providers in the the counties of Becker, Hubbard, Mahnomen, Norman, Ottertail, Wadena and Clay. We are able to accept clients covered under a variety of programs or pay sources.
PCA services must be medically necessary and ordered by a physician. An intial assessment by your county public health nurse will determine how many hours per day you can receive. You will also be given a choice of supervising your PCA services under the PCA Choice Program, or having an agency nurse oversee your care plan. PCA services are funded through Medical Assistance, Minnesota Care, Wavered services or Alternative Care Program. Private Pay clients are also encouraged to join.
PCA Choice Benefits...
After on initial assessment, you will be able to design a care plan with your doctor. You will then be able to utilize a PCA of your choice, or North Star can assist you in finding an appropriate match. Under PCA Choice, you are now your own supervisor. You decide what PCA duties will be using your care plan as your guide.
An paperwork...? There are minimal requirements, and you'll soon be in control of your recovery at home.
Under the PCA Choice Program, North Star Nursing is simply a billing intermediary. Since we are licensed by the State and a provider in the State Medical Assistance Program, we are assigned a number which allows us to bill the state for approved services. in turn, we pay your caregiver, and offer all the same benefits available to our own employees. We maintain a surety bond, workers compensation, and pay all applicable payroll taxes and insurances.
