Admitted to Evangelical Home from the Hospital
If you are being admitted from a qualifying hospital stay, typically Medicare will pay the first twenty days at 100%, and from day 21 to day 100 Medicare will only cover a portion of your stay as long as all Medicare guidelines are met. Any portion not covered by Medicare can be submitted to a secondary insurance plan.
Admitted from Home
If you are being admitted from home, Medicare and secondary insurance plans generally will not cover your stay with us.
General Medicare Information:
The key to understanding Medicare is that it provides reimbursement care for a specific time and is not intended to be utilized for long-term insurance coverage. The maximum benefit period is 100 days, but your medical condition may not qualify you to receive this length of coverage.
Medicare benefits apply under the following circumstances:
- The patient spends three consecutive days in an acute care hospital, not including the day of discharge.
- A physician certifies that the patient requires skilled or rehabilitative care.
Services typically covered by Medicare include:
- Patient room
- Meals, including therapeutic diets
- Nursing care
- Rehabilitation services
- Medical supplies
- Use of adaptive equipment and appliances
- Ancillary services, such as laboratory tests and x-rays
