Three requirements for Medicaid coverage are to be in a Medicaid certified (vendor) bed (which are offered at our facility), have assets of less than $1,000, and meet the state level of care medical requirements. You may be able to keep your home and have life insurance policies or prepaid burial plans with total cash surrender values less than $1,500 or an irrevocable preneed burial contract. For married couples, the spouse who remains at home will be able to keep some assets above the $1,000 limit. A division of assets is used by Medicaid to help prevent the spouse remaining at home from being impoverished due to the cost of nursing home care. The spouse remaining at home may also qualify to receive part or all of the nursing home resident's monthly income. Medicaid can be applied for by contacting the local Division of Family Services Office at (573) 783-5596.
To receive Skilled Nursing Medicare benefits in a long-term care facility, you must have been hospitalized for at least a 3 midnight stay/days within the past 30 days. In addition, you must also require 24-hour skilled nursing care or full-time therapy services. This type of stay/coverage is also offered on our hospital wing and is termed our "Swing Bed" program.
Medicare will cover the total cost of the first 20 days of your long-term care facility stay, except for any charges that Medicare does not allow (for example, telephone charges and laundry fees). On the 21st day, you will have a Medicare co-pay. For 2011, the per day co-pay amount is approximately $141.50. If you have a supplemental insurance, these additional costs may be covered. The maximum number of skilled nursing care days covered by Medicare may be up to 100 days per benefit period. No benefits are available after 100 days of care in a "benefit period".
If the long-term care facility determines you no longer require skilled nursing care, then you no longer qualify for Medicare Skilled Nursing coverage. A "Denial Letter" must be issued to you by the facility stating the decision. If you disagree with the decision, you may appeal by calling 1-800-347-1016.
