Benefits of Choosing In-Home Pediatric Care

In-home pediatric care offers a unique and compassionate solution for families with children requiring medical attention. This approach not only provides the necessary healthcare services within the comfort and safety of home but also ensures that care is tailored specifically to the child’s needs. By choosing in-home care, families can avoid the logistical challenges and emotional strain associated with frequent hospital visits. The personalized, one-on-one attention helps in closely monitoring the child’s health, ensuring prompt response to any arising health concerns, and adapting the care plan as needed. This method fosters a nurturing environment where the child can thrive physically and emotionally.

Personalized Care in a Familiar Setting

In-home pediatric care brings customized medical attention right to where children feel most secure—their homes. This setting allows healthcare professionals to tailor their care strategies to the individual needs of each child, considering their medical history, personal preferences, and family dynamics.

Reduced Stress by Avoiding Hospital Visits

Frequent hospital visits can be stressful for both children and their families. In-home care eliminates this stress, allowing children to receive high-quality medical care in the comfort of their own homes, surrounded by familiar faces and environments.

Convenient Healthcare at Home

In-home pediatric care offers unparalleled convenience. Families no longer need to navigate the complexities of scheduling and transporting their children to medical facilities. Healthcare professionals come to them, providing consistent care without disrupting the family’s routine.

Consistent Care for Complex Medical Needs

Children with complex medical needs require consistent, specialized care. In-home care services meet these demands by offering continuous, comprehensive care tailored to each child’s unique medical requirements. This consistency is crucial for managing long-term health conditions effectively.

Potential Cost Savings Compared to Hospitals

Choosing in-home pediatric care can lead to significant cost savings for families. It eliminates the need for costly hospital stays and associated expenses, making it a financially viable option for long-term care. Families can allocate resources more efficiently while still ensuring their children receives top-notch medical attention.

Types of Insurance Qualifications


Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP) is a Medicaid program for medically fragile children under the age of 21. GAPP covers in-home skilled nursing care and personal care support services for our medically complex children. Services are approved based on the child’s medical needs.

We work with you and your child’s doctor to apply for GAPP. Our intake team has the right expertise to help you to get approved for the care you need.

Katie Beckett Waiver

The Katie Beckett Waiver, or Deeming Waiver, is a Medicaid eligibility category for children under the age of 18. When a family has a higher income than the Medicaid level, the Katie Beckett Waiver is used to “waive” the family’s income and bases the approval decision on the child’s needs.

If the child qualifies for the Katie Beckett Waiver, they become eligible for services available under the Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP) Medicaid plan.

Private Insurance

Private insurance plans with Anthem BCBS, CIGNA, United Healthcare, AETNA, and other major insurances may cover our services. ACP will work with you to acquire the proper authorization from your insurance company. Our goal is to make the intake process as smooth as possible for you.

Private Pay

Private pay is an option that is fully funded by the patient/family. Nursing care and personal care services are available for in-home or out-of-home support. Private pay can be an option for families in need of additional hours of care not covered by Medicaid or other payers.
