Cognitive or Psychiatric Conditions

Beneficiaries may be considered homebound because of cognitive or psychiatric impairments. This may include Alzheimer's disease, organic brain syndrome and senility that require constant supervision to be safe. It also includes psychiatric conditions such as agoraphobia or uncontrolled psychoses. Beneficiaries who choose not to leave home because of feebleness and insecurity due to advanced age would not be considered homebound unless the previously described homebound criteria are met.

These beneficiaries must still have the general inability to leave the home and any absences are infrequent, and of short duration.
