FINANCIAL QUESTIONS

Will my Medicare Part A cover my stay?

For a skilled rehab or nursing stay to be covered by Medicare, you must have been admitted as an inpatient in the hospital for three “midnights” in the last 30 days (please note, some patients may stay overnight in the hospital; however, they are admitted under “observation” and do not qualify). When you are discharged from the hospital, you will need a doctor’s order for a skilled Medicare Part A stay.

 

Can I qualify for skilled rehab if I’m not currently on Medicare?

We accept most managed care and commercial insurance, as well as private payment. You’ll need a doctor’s order for skilled care. Your doctor will determine if you have a skilled nursing and rehab need.
