Medicare and Insurance Criteria

Admission to the Skilled Nursing Facility is possible when residents meet Medicare and/or commercial insurance criteria. Respite care for residents will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Medicare and/or insurance reimbursement is based on a resident’s progress and their active participation in rehabilitation activities. To ensure that our residents are meeting Medicare or insurance criteria for continued coverage, their need for daily skilled services are continually reviewed. Skilled services mean you require a licensed person to train, teach or care for you on a daily basis. This includes a physical or occupational therapist or nurse.
