Most former Iowa Army Ammunition Plant (IAAP) workers know that they qualify for home health care benefits offered by the Department of Energy under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). What may come as a surprise, however, is that many IAAP workers and their families are missing out on important information they need in order to make informed decisions for their future long term care.
Many former IAAP workers don’t realize that home health agencies that are certified by the state of Iowa can provide them with a wider range of coverage options and services that they are not able to access through uncertified home health agencies. At Advanced Home Health Care, we are certified by the Federal and State government. This means that IAAP workers and their families can receive the full range of home care and medical care benefits that they need, including all United States Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) benefits, as well as benefits offered under private insurance, long term care insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.
At Advanced Home Health Care, we understand that navigating your home health care benefits can be a confusing and overwhelming process, but we can help! If you or a loved one once worked at the IAAP and are wondering if you qualify for additional benefits and services to what you are currently receiving, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of our free consultation. Our Social Services staff would be happy to explain all of your options for services, completely free of charge and with no obligation at all. Additionally, our nurses will be happy to provide you with a free in-home consultation to determine other benefits for which you and you family members might qualify.
