    Here are the steps I used to find your code.

    First, I looked at the Alphabetic Index where I found no listing for Homemaker Service under Home Care or Home health.

    Next, I looked at the Table of Contents for the 2011 HCPCS Level II (expert edition), I saw that S5130 is in the Tabular List range: Temporary National Codes (Non-Medicare)(S0012—S9999) which begins on p.114.

    Finally, I looked at the Tabular List, I found S5130 on p.119 (S5001—S8110):

    S5130 Homemaker service, NOS; per 15 minutes

    Does this answer your query?
