What does Medicare cover in a skilled nursing facility?

Medicare Part A helps cover 100 days of care at the Harold and Grace Upjohn Community Care Center. Anyone with "original" Medicare will receive coverage for all costs for the first 20 days. After the first 20 days, the next 80 days have a co-insurance amount of $133.50. The co-insurance amount may be covered by a private insurance policy known as a Medigap policy. Medicare Advantage plans offer different amounts of coverage; check with your plan for specific information on your coverage.
