There is a Medicare “rule” or “qualification” for Skilled Nursing Facility Care that is explained on page 41 in the “Medicare and You 2016” handbook. The following is important information regarding this rule:

1.) Medicare covers semi-private rooms, meals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, and other services and supplies that are medically necessary after a 3-day minimum medically-necessary inpatient hospital stay for related illness or injury. An inpatient hospital stay begins the day you are formally admitted with a doctor’s order and doesn’t include the day you are discharged. You must stay 3 days past mid-night to qualify.

2.) Until there has been a diagnosis, your loved one may be in “observation” and not formally admitted into an inpatient hospital stay. It is important to check with hospital staff to understand if your loved one has been formally admitted into an inpatient stay.

3.) To qualify for Skilled Nursing, your doctor must certify that you need daily skilled care like intravenous injections, physical, occupational, or speech therapy.

4.) You pay nothing for the first 20 days and a co-pay per day for days 21-100 for a benefit period.

5.) Visit, or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) for more information.

A Note About Covid-19

Dear Family and Friends,

Effective immediately, our centers will no longer allow any visitors into our buildings.

Pillar Stone Healthcare Company, LLC is implementing this restriction to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus and to protect the health of our residents, their loved ones and our medical staff. Nursing staff and the attending physician will work with families who have special circumstances, such as critically ill residents on a case-by-case basis. This decision to expand these visitor restrictions is a collaborative effort among regional healthcare centers, the CDC, our local health department, Texas Health and Human Services and the Federal Government.
Please consider using our Virtual Visiting Services to visit with your loved one.
We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. We hope you understand we have been called to action to protect those we serve and care for from this disease.
