Q: How often will I see my doctor while at the Abington?

A: Your attending physician, in accordance with Public Health regulations, will visit you at the Abington within 72 hours after your admission. He or she will then see you monthly during your stay.

For most specialized doctor visits (orthopedics, neurosurgeons, etc…) the patient will travel to the physician’s office .

Q: Will Medicare cover my stay at Abington and for how long?

A: Here is some general medicare information regarding Part A coverage for a skilled nursing facility…

A skilled nursing facility is different from a nursing home. It is a special kind of facility that primarily furnishes skilled nursing and rehabilitation services. It may be a separate facility or a distinct part of another facility, such as a hospital.

Medicare Part A can help pay for up to 100 days of skilled care in a skilled nursing facility during a benefit period. A new benefit period exists if a patient has never been in a skilled nursing facility. If a patient has already used Medicare days in a skilled nursing facility, a new benefit period may begin only when a patient has remained out of a hospital or skilled nursing facility for at least 60 days and is not receiving a skilled level of care.

All covered services for the first 20 days are fully paid by Medicare. All covered services for the next 80 days are paid by Medicare, except for a daily coinsurance amount. The daily coinsurance for 2013 is $148.00. The patient is responsible for the coinsurance. If the patient requires more than 100 days of care in a benefit period, the patient is responsible for all charges beginning with the 101st day.

Medicare will not pay for your stay if the services you receive are primarily personal care or custodial services such as, assistance in walking, getting in and out of bed, eating, dressing, bathing, and taking medications. Medicare does not pay for custodial care if that is the only kind of care required.

To qualify for Medicare covered skilled nursing facility benefits, you must:

Require skilled care which, as a practical matter, can only be provided in a skilled nursing facility on an in-patient basis.

Be in a hospital for at least three consecutive days (not counting the day of discharge) before entering a skilled nursing facility that is certified by Medicare.

Be admitted to the skilled nursing facility for the same condition for which you were treated in the hospital.

Generally be admitted to the facility within 30 days of your discharge from the Hospital.

Be certified by a medical professional as needing skilled nursing or skilled rehabilitation services on a daily basis.

Gaps in Skilled Nursing Facility Coverage You Pay:

$148.00 daily coinsurance for days 21 through 100 in each benefit period.

All costs after 100 days in benefit period.

All costs if you were not transferred to the skilled nursing facility in a timely manner after a qualifying hospital stay.

For care in a general nursing home, or in a skilled nursing facility not approved by Medicare, or just for custodial care in a Medicare approved skilled nursing facility.

For personal convenience items such as a telephone or television.

For personal items such as beauty and barber services, toiletries, etc…

If the patient has a supplemental insurance carrier, it is the patient’s responsibility to get reimbursed by the insurance carrier for any co-payments.

Note: Medicare does not pay for transportation in medivans or wheelchair vans. Medicare normally will only pay for medical transportation by ambulance in a medical emergency situation.

Q: I'm interested, where do we start?

A: Contact the Admissions Department.

Pre-admission interviews will be held with the resident, his/her available family or responsible individual(s) and the residents physician to collect information about the residents physical and emotional needs, attitudes and expectations and those of his/her family members. Assessment is made from information obtained, and the decision for admission is based on the ability of the facility to meet expressed needs and expectations adequately.

Admission to the facility is initiated through contact with a member of the Admissions Team to assure that the resident qualifies for admission, that all of the needs of the resident can be met, and that there is a bed available for placement in this facility.

The purpose of the pre-admission interview also is to provide information to the resident and available family members or responsible individuals about the facility, the facilities philosophy of care, available services, costs to the resident (including any extra charges), rules, regulations, and limitations pertaining to the resident, family members and rights of the resident.

Every effort will be made to reduce the stress and anxiety caused by the anticipated admission, including arrangements for pre-admission visits by the resident and/or family member or responsible persons whenever possible.
