In terms of rehab care, how many days stay will Medicare cover?
The Medicare skilled nursing benefit is 100 days of which the first 20 are covered 100%. Starting on day 21, you will be required to pay a daily co-payment. The amount per day is set by Medicare and changes every year. Our Admissions staff will be happy to explain this to you or answer any questions you may have about Medicare skilled nursing facility coverage or Medicare Advantage plan coverage. If you have a secondary insurance such an AARP plan or TriCare, we can explain that coverage as well.
Does the family have input in decision-making processes?
Yes. The family can play an integral part of our patients' rehabilitative success, and it is extremely helpful if they are present during the Care Plan Meeting.
Can family members attend the facility’s internal planning meetings?
Yes. After a patient checks in, a Care Plan Meeting is scheduled within 14 days. This meeting involves the patient, family members, our Dietary Supervisor, Activities Director, and our Social Services Director, who acts as our patient advocate.

How much involvement do patients have in decision making?
Your success is our success! We want you to get back to feeling like yourself again, so your input is absolutely critical to make sure that happens.

After all, it's your care, so your participation is of utmost importance.
