How can I get questions answered about the Affordable Care Act?
We recommend that people start with speaking to a trained professional. Trained insurance professionals or a navigator with MN Sure can help you determine if you are eligible for a variety of programs which have become available because of the Affordable Care Act. There are a lot of factors to take in consideration; like monthly premiums, deductibles, out-of-pocket expenses, co-pays and most importantly, which doctors one may see. A trained insurance professional may help you navigate through all of the changes of the Affordable Care Act and find a plan that works for you.
How do I choose a rehabilitation facility?
Finding a place for a family member after a hospitalization, injury or illness can be a difficult task. They may be unable to live independently and require inpatient care in the short or long term. The most important thing to do is take a tour of the facility. Ask questions of the staff and Admissions Coordinator and be sure to address any special needs. We suggest you tour more than one place to find the best one for you.
How do I pay for nursing home care?
Chris Jensen accepts Medicare, Medical Assistance, many approved insurances and private payment. To qualify for some Medicare benefits, you must be hospitalized for at least 3 days and meet additional criteria. You will also need to have certain special services provided at the nursing facility. This could be a complex wound care, Physical therapy, Occupational therapy or Speech therapy services, IV medications, alternative nutritional support, a new chronic illness diagnosis or a need for self-care education. Medicare will pay for 100% of room and board, therapy and medications for the first 20 days. After 20 days there is a daily co-payment. Some insurance plans will pay your co-pay and others will not. Coverage may last up to 100 days.
Medical Assistance is based on individual financial situation. An application may be completed through St. Louis County. Our social workers are happy to assist with this and other forms of insurance.
