Maintenance Care

Maintenance Care is care provided to a person who needs assistance or support for the essence of daily living but who is not under a course of treatment which will improve his condition to the extent necessary to enable him to function without such assistance or support, except for care which is necessary to treat a curable illness. A Maintenance Care determination is not precluded by the fact that a patient is under the care of a Physician and that the services are provided at the Physician’s request.
