What should I bring?

What can I expect when I arrive at the rehab facility?

A. You will be shown to your room and a nurse will complete a full skin check, history and physical. The nurse will note any bruises, wounds, etc. By law the facility is required to assess for all three therapy needs: Occupational, Physical and Speech and determine which are needed.


When can I expect to see my doctor and how often?

A. This varies for every patient and is determined by the medical condition of each patient. Physicians generally see patients within 24 hours of admission and as needed thereafter. You will most likely see a physician or nurse practitioner once a week. Long term patients are seen by their physician at least once every 30 days.


How often can I expect to receive rehabilitation services?

A. The therapy staff is experienced in working with the adult population with the common goal of returning to a life as active as they were prior to their illness or injury. The staff will provide as much therapy as the patient can tolerate to reach their goals. Therapy should start within 24 to 48 hours (with some exceptions).


Will I need to provide my own transportation to the rehab center?

A. The majority of patients are transported by non-emergency ambulance and the cost is normally the responsibility of the patient. Please contact your case manager for more information.


What type of accommodations does Medicare/ Insurance Cover?

A. Medicare and Insurance cover a semi-private room. Private rooms may be available for an additional fee.


When are visiting hours?

A. Generally, visiting hours are not restricted. We understand that your friends & family provide valuable support during your recovery. We recommend visiting between the hours of 8 a.m. to 9pm. Please be considerate of the needs of your roommate.


Will the rehab center cost be covered by my insurance?

A. Patients with Medicare A must have a card that reads "Hospital Insurance." They must also be admitted to the facility under a physician’s order within 30 days of a three, consecutive-night hospital stay (not in observation.) Generally, during the first 20 days of care, Medicare will pay 100%. For days 21-100, a daily co-insurance rate is required. Medicare does not cover skilled nursing fees over 100 days. Although Medicare covers UP TO 100 days, the individual must exhibit a skilled need. Patients with insurance must receive services at a center contracted with the insurance provider. The length of stay and co-pays or deductibles will vary by plan and may be collect up front upon admission. The center staff will verify your benefits and inform you of any additional financial responsibility.


Who will discharge me and when?

A. Your Care Team can determine your safest discharge date, however only the facility physician can discharge you from the facility. Upon discharge, the facility Social Worker will order any needed equipment and will set up Home Health Care or additional Out-Patient Rehabilitation as needed.
