Understanding the coverage of available insurance and payment options is important for you to be able to make sound decisions about either Subacute Rehabilitation or Long-Term Care Placement. Meadowbrook Healthcare accepts health insurance from most companies. Verification of insurance coverage needs to be determined and payment arrangements secured prior to admission. Our Admissions Department is available to help navigate you through this process.
Here is a quick summary of coverage options to consider:
Meadowbrook Healthcare does accept private pay admissions. Those wishing to apply for admission must verify their ability to meet their financial responsibilities.
Long-Term Care Insurance
Most long-term care insurance policies reimburse the patient directly. Therefore, Meadowbrook Healthcare will bill the patient directly for services rendered. Long-term care insurance will be verified prior to admission.
In a skilled nursing facility Medicare Part A will pay for a semi-private room, meals, medication, rehabilitation services, medical supplies and activities. You must have a three-day hospital qualifying stay prior to admission to a skilled nursing facility. For each benefit period you will be responsible for:
- Days 1-20: There is no cost for the patient. Medicare pays the entire cost.
- Days 21-100: There is a $161.00 co-pay. If there is a secondary Insurance we will verify the coverage and advise you what the supplement will pay
- You will be responsible for all costs incurred past the 100th day.
The benefit period for Medicare Part A is a maximum of 100 days. You must meet Medicare criteria throughout your stay for Medicare to continue to pay. Most patients do not require a 100-day stay.
Managed Medicare is similar to Medicare in terms of the benefit period of 100 days. The most noticeable difference is that with Managed Medicare, a qualifying stay prior to your admission is not required; however, pre-authorization for services is required.
Meadowbrook Healthcare accepts Medicaid based upon bed availability. You must meet Medicaid’s clinical as well as financial criteria to qualify for this program. Questions regarding qualifications and enrollment process should be directed to an Admissions Representative. Any patients applying to Meadowbrook Healthcare for admission for Long-Term care must be approved by Medicaid prior to admission.
