Private pay is one of the most common forms of payment for home care services and we accept it here at FAITH MEDICAL SERVICES. Also known as “out of pocket” payment, private pay means that your family will be covering the costs of personal home care, without resorting to Medicaid and other government-funded programs. Private pay is a valid option when your family does not meet Medicaid requirements or when you want to hire a professional caregiver as quickly as possible, without waiting for your application to be approved.
Can my family afford private pay?
At FAITH MEDICAL SERVICES, we want to make skilled home nursing care in Georgia as affordable as possible. In the long run, hiring a caregiver can be less stressful because you don’t have to waste precious time analyzing applications to find the right person for the job. You also don’t have to pay for medical training. FAITH MEDICAL SERVICES takes care of all these so that you can offer your loved one the care they need as quickly as possible.
Compared to admitting a relative into a nursing home or another similar facility, at-home care costs are considerably more affordable. However, we understand that choosing to hire a caregiver is a major financial decision for the entire family and we recommend our clients to plan out their options.
When choosing private pay for home care services, make sure you consider all sources of income, including:
- Emergency savings accounts

No matter what services you need, you can count on us for the highest level of care and attention to detail.ending on your needs and budget, our caregivers can offer their support round-the-clock or spend just a few hours with them, when no one else in the family is available.
