Displaying items by tag: regency heritage somerset

Paying for in-patient Post-Acute Rehab in a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, is typically covered by any one of 4 insurance types, or a combination thereof:

 

Medicaid Only

Basic daily rate provided for room and board, includes Post-Acute Rehabilitation when provided on a purely custodial level.

Medicaid (to cover room and board) and Medicare Part B (to cover the therapy component):

Subject to facility daily rate plus rehabilitation when provided

The recommendation is no more than 25 sessions under Part B for one in-patient rehab stay or "episode."

Recommendation of no more than 3 "episodes" (ie: in-patient rehab stay, or decline in resident functioning) each year.

Usually provided 3x weekly

Therapy provided to long-term residents or to residents who were admitted from home or another nursing facilities.

Part B is subject to an annual cap

Medicare Part A

Provides the most robust therapy allocation and all inclusive including room and board for in-patient Post-Acute Rehabilitation.

Provided when residents are admitted to the rehab facility after a minimum of a 3 midnight hospital stay

Therapy is provided a minimum of 5 times a week and/or skilled care is provided by the nursing staff (ie: IV, tracheotomy, care, wounds, G-tube, etc)

When therapy is planning a discharge of a Medicare Part A patient, the discharge must be coordinated ahead of time with the rest of the facility (as a collaborative effort between all disciplines)

HMO & PPO

Therapy is provided via different "levels" or allocations, which determines the amount of therapy to be provided.

SNF level provides for 1-1.5 hours of therapy per day in any of the 3 disciplines (PT, OT, SP), or a combination of all 3.

Subacute Level of therapy provides for up to 2 hours or more each day (all 3 disciplines in any combination).

Pre-approved visits (in the case of HMO's) usually authorized for 7-days at a time and then subject to renewal, pending satisfactory submission of specific documentation by the facility to the provider.

Private Pay

A privately paid stay paid to the facility by the resident, family, or caregiver.

Private pay usually includes room and board and basic nursing care only and is subject to separate fees for ancillaries and therapy.

Amount of therapy allocated is based upon resident/family approval

 Length and duration of therapy is determined by the resident in coordination with the Therapy department

A team decision is made among the resident, family, nursing, social worker, etc as to when patient is at optimal functioning levels and no longer requiring therapy.

Hospice

Resident is terminally ill within a specific government regulation period. Usually, Hospice is defined as a patient who has been given 6 months or less to live by the attending physician (this is in purely clinical terms).

Therapy is provided for comfort care only since there is no real rehabilitation potential.

 Must get pre-authorization from the hospice company
