What is Medicare and will it pay for nursing home services?

Medicare is a federal health care program that is generally available to all persons over the age of 65. Medicare is divided into several parts, which cover different areas, such as hospital stays, physician services and prescriptions. Medicare does not cover most nursing home care, but it provides certain benefits for skilled nursing care. Typically, Medicare will cover a person entering a nursing home following a 3-day hospital stay. However, Medicare will only pay for a limited period of time, while the patient is receiving certain types of therapy services. For more information visit: www.medicare.gov

Medicaid, also known as Medical Assistance is a state managed health care program, which is partially funded by the federal government. Medicaid does cover nursing home services, but eligibility requirements are strict, only covering patients with limited assets and income.
