        150 150 Clifford Horwitz


        My  mother is in the hospital and I was told she will need to stay at a nursing home before returning home. Will Medicare pay for her visit?


        In order for your mother to qualify for Skilled Nursing Medicare Coverage she needs to meet certain guidelines, these are:

        • Have been a hospital patient for 3 consecutive days (not counting her discharge date);
        • She was admitted to a skilled nursing facility that is Medicare certified within 30 days of her hospital discharge;
        • She requires skilled nursing or rehabilitation services on a daily basis that as a practical matter, can only be provided on an inpatient basis;
        • Her doctor certifies that she requires skilled care services at the time of her admission.
