How to Qualify:

Skilled Nursing Care

Our nursing service is covered by private insurance or Medicare Part A. Medicare Part A requires a three-night acute care hospital stay within the 30 days prior to your skilled admission. Some insurance providers do not require this three-night stay requirement.

Pre-requisites that Qualify a person for Skilled Nursing coverage by Medicare include:

Medicare pays for transitional care in a nursing home only for limited periods following hospitalization.

  • A person must have three overnights in an acute care hospital within 30 days of admission to a Skilled Nursing Center.
  • A 100-day maximum stay is related to any one hospitalization and diagnosis.
  • A person must make regular progress as documented by medical professionals. If progress toward prior level of function is no longer occurring, Medicare coverage ends.
  • A person must have a physician order for Skilled Nursing Services.
