What are the qualifications of Medicare?
To qualify for Medicare Part A services under Federal guidelines, the beneficiary must have current Medicare benefits, a qualifying 3-midnight stay in an acute hospital within 30 days of admission and qualifying diagnosis for skilled services.

If the beneficiary meets the qualifying conditions, Medicare will pay 100% of the daily room rate, plus all covered ancillary charges for the remainder of the first twenty (20) days. You (the beneficiary) are required to pay a portion of the charge for the 21st through 100th day of coverage for each benefit period. That portion is called co-insurance. The co-insurance amount is established by the Federal Government. The co-insurance amount for calendar year 2016 is $161.00 per day. Medicare pays the remaining portion. Some private supplemental insurance will cover the co-insurance amount. You should verify coverage with your particular insurance company. We will bill your secondary insurance company for you. However, if the claim has not been paid within 60 days of submission, you will be responsible for seeing that payment is made. In order to properly bill, you are required to provide the facility with copies of all Medicare and insurance cards. If these cards are not provided, you will be billed directly as private pay.

What if I don’t qualify for Medicare A coverage?
When the beneficiary is no longer covered for Medicare Part A services, they may be eligible for Medicare Part B benefits.(to determine if you have Part B benefits, see your Medicare card) Medicare Part B may pay 80% of the following ancillary services and you (the beneficiary) will be billed 20% co-insurance.
