Carol is correct insurance, makes the decision on whats covered. On some occasions the Dr can write Letter of Necessity to the insurance company regarding visiting nurses and maybe an CNA for daily care. If you can afford an live in caregiver there are agencies out there. The Social Worker should have helped you before he or she left. From all the things you have mention you need help. Some communities have services to assist the sick and home alone.

Find out what you are being denied for. If it is insurance, call them. If they won't listen tell them that you want to speak to their supervisor. Insurance is such a racket and have far too much control You have to advocate for yourself!

Do you have a Pulmonary doctor and a Primary Care doctor? Maybe they could double team the insurance company.

Your insurance has a lot to do with whether you get home health. I have Humana and they don't authorize it. I won't have them in 2023 .
My church also helps me with visitors to comfort me. At least I am not alone.
Sometimes, I have to change my outlook which helps me see things differently. You can too!

I don't know what the waiver program is but, if you need help don't give up. When I have trouble getting what I need medically, I go to the nurse for help. They usually know exactly what to do. I find the nurses more helpful than the doctor is those kind of situations. Good luck.
