F/U to nursing home care - info inside

I try not to top post, but I did not want this information to be lost.

Medicare will cover In Home Health Care.  The patient must meed certain criteria to be eligible (most important that there will be improvement), but it can be very helpful - at least on the short term until you get the best arrangement for everyone.

 Here is the link to the handbook.  http://www.medicare.gov/publications/pubs/pdf/10969.pdf

  • thank you for this!

    I just sent the link to my mom!

  • Medicare will cover some home health care yes, but very rarely for an extended period of time.   It may get you a few weeks max, and generally they will only come 2-3 x a week for an hour or so (not 7 days).  Just some info so you are aware.

  • In my MIL situation Medicare was covering the first 20 days and afterward only a percentage of the nursing home. We haven't gotten the bill for the additional 9 days she is staying, but I imagine it will be $$$$. The cost for the room was $250 a day and didn't include anything else.
