The cost of care will vary based on several factors. Some of the costs may be covered by insurance, Medicare or MediCaid. We have provided some information about these coverages below. For complete information on what is covered by Medicare visit www.medicare.gov. or contact your individual insurance plan. For additional information, our business office will be happy to answer your questions, please give us a call!
Premier Health and Rehabilitation accepts many health insurance plans. While the benefits and out of pocket cost will vary, many plans will cover at least a portion of the care provided for a skilled stay. Insurance often falls into three categories:
- Fee-for-service health insurance plans
- Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs)
- Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs)
Medicare replacement insurance or a Medicare Advantage Plan is a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare. While we contract with many of these plans, please call the facility directly to confirm they are a contracted provider.
Managed care refers to a method of providing health care to people who have purchased health insurance from companies that use this method with the goals of reducing the cost of providing health benefits and improving the quality of care. Most managed care plans require that enrollees only seek health care from their approved providers that have met their standards for outcome and are within their contracted network.
If you meet eligibility requirements, Medicaid may help pay for nursing home care. Each state determines its own standards and requirements. In most cases, qualified residents are required to make a co-payment that consists of their monthly income (Social Security check, pension, etc.), less a personal allowance. However, the amount you are required to pay is determined by your local Medicaid office.
To learn more about Medicaid coverage and enrollment, contact our admissions coordinator or a social worker. Or you can visit the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) website and click on the desired state for specific contact information.
There are times when caregivers need a helping hand. It may be a need to attend a special event or just to get a well-deserved break. Nursing Facility offers respite services to provide care when the caregiver cannot. Our team is experienced in caring for individuals with a wide variety of service needs, including a decline in memory. We offer respite care that can provide peace of mind for the caregiver and a positive, social experience for the person served.
