  • Private duty nursing
  • Physical therapy (PT)
  • Occupational therapy (OT)
  • Speech and language therapy
  • A personal care attendant (PCA)
  • A respite worker

Your child's health insurance plan may offer home health services as a covered benefit. Check the benefits handbook or contact a Member Services Representative to ask about services covered by the health plan.
