  • 2. Medicare Coverage of Nursing Home Treatment
    What is the amount of coverage that the current Medicare plans offer for nursing home treatment, long-term treatment and expert nursing care?
  • 3. Medicare Coverage of Nursing Home Treatment
    Normally, Medicare does not offer any help for long-term treatment and care.
    Treatment on a long-term basis is referred to as “custodial care,” as it can be carried out in various forms and locations.
  • 4. Medicare Coverage of Nursing Home Treatment
    Long-term treatment and care can be rendered at a nursing home, another location in the community and even at home.
  • 5. Medicare Coverage of Nursing Home Treatment
    Personalized care, which cannot be categorized as skilled care, includes supportive service for daily activities like bathing, eating and other general support which does not fall under the category of skilled medical treatment.
    Therefore, Medicare will not pay for this type of care.
  • 6. Medicare Coverage of Nursing Home Treatment
    Medicare offers monetary help only for treatment, classified as vital and proficient medical or nursing care.
    If you are ill and need constant care under the eye of trained medical personnel who will have the responsibility for your remedial care, you would fall into this category.
  • 7. Medicare Coverage of Nursing Home Treatment
    Trained medical personnel like doctors and nurses managing your treatment differ from the long-term care given at home or elsewhere by your family members or care-givers.
    Medicare will only pay for treatment given at a medical facility by qualified and experienced staff.
