FAQ

How do I find the UW Health Home Care building?

How do I refer a patient for home equipment (HME) or supplies?

Patients need to be informed that they have a choice of vendors. If they choose to have UW Health Home Care supply their needs, contact (608) 203-2273.

Will insurance cover home health equipment and supplies?

Insurance will usually cover a portion of the equipment and supplies, but there are many rules that govern qualifications for coverage. Please contact UW Health Home Care at (608) 203-2273, and we will be happy to work with providers, patients and the insurance companies to establish coverage.
