8. Will Medicare pay for a nursing home stay?

To qualify for Medicare’s skilled nursing benefits, an eligible beneficiary must meet specific criteria: admission must be within 30 days of a 3-day hospital stay (not counting the day of discharge), the attending physician must certify that the skilled care is medically necessary, and the skilled care must be related to the condition for which the beneficiary was hospitalized. Even for those who meet the criteria, Medicare’s skilled nursing benefit is short-term, covering 20 full-pay and 80 coinsurance days for each continuous period in which care is needed. Medicare does not pay for custodial or intermediate care in a nursing home, even if the nursing home is a Medicare-certified facility. Medicare’s nursing home coverage is limited to medically necessary skilled nursing and rehabilitative care following a hospital stay.

 The Official Government Site for People with Medicare has more detailed information  about how Medicare relates to long-term care. Section 3 of the publication  Medicare Coverage of Skilled Nursing Facility Care explains the skilled nursing benefit, how skilled nursing differs from custodial or intermediate care, the criteria for coverage, how benefit periods are determined, and other aspects of Medicare coverage in nursing  homes. See also the Medicare links and contacts below.

9. Will Medicaid pay for a nursing home stay?

In contrast to Medicare, most Medicaid programs including the Illinois program will help pay a portion of the costs of long-term care for eligible recipients. Medicaid is a federal/state assistance program in which eligibility depends on demonstrated need. Applicants must prove that they are within the income and asset levels set by the state in  which they are applying. Benefits toward the cost of nursing home care are available as long as the recipient continues to be within those asset and income levels.

See the Illinois Department of Health Care and Family Services website for specific information on the Illinois Medicaid program.
