Skilled Nursing Facility

The Pros can answer your questions!

What is a skilled nursing facility?

Generally, a skilled nursing facility is a clinical care provider of 24-hour licensed nursing. A “SNF”, as they are often referred to, provide services for patients who require medical or nursing care and/or therapy services for the rehabilitation of injured, disabled, or sick persons. Some of the most common services are: rehabilitation, intravenous therapy, post-surgical stabilization, pulmonary management, and wound care. Additionally, facilities provide assistance with administration of medications, and aid in a variety of daily living needs, including dressing, bathing, walking and eating.

Does a skilled nursing facility provide other services?

Most facilities do provide additional services, and some are included in your regular inpatient care.

  • Psychiatric /psychological services
  • Podiatry and optometry
  • Social services
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Beauty/barber shop*

*Usually available as additional fees to daily rates

How do I know if I qualify for Medicare or Medicaid? What’s the difference between the programs?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program. It typically covers some expenses related to a stay in a skilled nursing facility, but only after an inpatient hospital stay covering a period of “three midnights” and only for a related illness or injury. Generally, you may be eligible for Medicare if you or your spouse has paid into Social Security for at least 10 years.

What should I bring with me to the facility?

Assisted Living Pros can help guide you through this process, but below are a few things that you will definitely need to bring with you:
  • First and foremost, bring all insurance and/or Medicare/Medicaid cards.
  • Provide any and all insurance coverage cards to the admissions representative at the facility.
  • Also, make sure to have drivers license and social security cards with you as they may be needed to complete the admission process.
