Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of home care?

Seniors who remain in their own home with a nurturing, supportive environment will continue to be more socially engaged, physically active and achieve a greater state of well-being. Our specialized care encircles your loved one with encouragement and security, offering the opportunity to age with dignity in a familiar environment. Home care helps reduce stress by relieving the family of many duties and responsibilities associated with being a full time caregiver.

Who pays the caregiver?

We take care of all billing, payroll, employee/employer taxes, workers compensation and liability insurance, bonding and administrative/scheduling responsibilities for you. You do not have to worry about paying extra taxes, or reporting employment information to local, state and federal agencies. Every caregiver is an employee of CMK Homecare.
Home Care
Are your home care services covered through Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance?

Medicare and Medicaid do not cover our services, as we are private pay only. If you are seeking services that can be funded by Medicare or Medicaid, we suggest you refer to Medicare.gov and Medicaid.gov for more information. Some long-term care insurance policies will pay for our services. If you have a long-term care policy, we will assist you with the proper documentation to submit claims for your reimbursement; however, we require payment at the time services are invoiced.

Are your caregivers insured and bonded?

Yes.

Are your caregivers drug tested?

Yes.

What happens if a client or family does not like the caregiver?

If a client or family is not satisfied with our choice of caregiver, we will assign a new caregiver to the client.

Are the caregivers your employees or contractors?

CMK Homecare caregivers are our employees.

What if I find and hire a caregiver on my own, what is my exposure?

CMK Homecare has a multi-step screening and interview process in place to provide the right caregiver for you. If you hire a caregiver individually, they are your employee and you are responsible for federal, state, Medicare, and unemployment taxes, as well as workers compensation. You have to manage their time, and if they are out sick, you have no agency to provide backup coverage. Once you discharge them, they can file for unemployment. You also have liability for injury and automobile accidents involving the caregiver. For your safety, you should also confirm that the caregiver has passed a criminal background check and drug test.

Can you care for someone in a facility (hospital, nursing home, or assisted living)?

Yes. We provide services to you wherever you call home.
