Yes. However, you would need to have the following:
- Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and have days left in your benefit period.
- A qualifying hospital stay. This means an inpatient hospital stay of 3 consecutive days or more, starting with the day the hospital admits you as an inpatient, but not including the day you leave the hospital. You must enter the skilled nursing facility within 30 days of leaving the hospital.
- Require skilled care on a daily basis. Skilled care is health care given when you need skilled or rehab staff to treat, manage, observe and evaluate your care. Examples of skilled care include physical, occupational and speech therapy at least 5 days per week;wound care; IV antibiotic therapy, etc.
You may be eligible up to 100 days of coverage under Medicare. The Medicare program will pay for the full cost of your 20 days in a skilled nursing facility. The next 80 days (days 21-100) you will be responsible for a daily rate of $152.00. This rate usually increases each year on January 1.
If you have a supplemental insurance plan and it has Skilled Nursing benefits, it will cover the daily co-insurance.
” Thank you for taking such good care of my client during her stay. I can’t say enough good things about your willingness to allow her husband to stay with her. He would have been lost without her. There’s not many communities that would do that. I am beyond impressive with how you put residents needs first. ” – Anne McAfee. Senior Transitions
