How Do Patients Qualify for Skilled Services?
Qualified Medicare Part A patients are eligible for up to 100 days* of skilled services in a benefit period. Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) are currently the only treatment setting where qualified patients can receive therapy 5 days per week for up to 100 days. Intensive therapy after illness or injury often decreases recovery time and chance of re-hospitalization.
- Must have Medicare Part A benefits
- Must have a qualifying hospital stay – minimum of 3 midnights
- Must be admitted into a skilled facility within 30 days of a hospital discharge with a diagnosis that requires skilled nursing services and/or skilled rehab services
- Skilled services must be ordered by a physician
If a patient does not meet the Medicare Part A criteria, then it is possible that Medicare Part B or private insurance would cover rehabilitation services in a skilled nursing facility.
