Curious about Medicare and Medicaid?

1

Medicare-

Short Term Care Only

Medicare is a government-funded health insurance program that primarily provides coverage for people who are 65 or older. It also covers people with certain disabilities or chronic conditions. The program covers short term rehabilitation stays. Typically, a Medicare patient gets a benefit period of up to 100 days to use in a skilled nursing facility. Under traditional Medicare, the first 20 days of rehab are covered at 100% with co-insurance being due on the 21st day-the 100th day. Some residents may have a secondary or supplemental insurance which can cover the co-insurance. For more information click the button below.

Medicare Advantage-Short Term Care Only

A Medicare Advantage plan, is a type of Medicare health plan offered by private insurance companies that contract with the federal government. You typically need to use the healthcare providers within the plan's network. Medicare Advantage plans typically have lower out-of-pocket costs than original Medicare, but they often have different copays, deductibles, and coinsurance amounts. Medicare Advantage plans require prior authorization from the insurance company before a patient is allowed to admit. For more information click the button below or contact our Admissions team.

Medicaid-

Long-Term Care

In Kansas, Medicaid provides coverage for long-term care for eligible individuals who meet certain income and asset criteria.

Under Medicaid in Kansas, the state pays for the nursing home care costs, but you may be required to contribute to the cost of care if you have income or assets above the eligibility limit. Our Social Worker and Business Office Director can help you apply for Medicaid and oversee the entire process. Our facility is also able to work with those who are currently pending  known as 'Medicaid Pending' as well as those who need to have their Medicaid switched.
