There’s a big change coming to Medicare in October, but don’t worry—it’s good news.
When CCRCs like Clare Oaks provide rehab and skilled nursing services, they often receive reimbursement from Medicare. Until now, the government reimbursed for these services on the basis of days spent on campus. But many people have a confluence of conditions that require more care than physical, occupational and speech therapy. Thus, the one-size-fits-all reimbursement model discouraged some communities from treating people who also have chronic conditions.
But, as insurance expert George Shea of AMI Group, Inc. will explain, there’s a new pricing plan in place: Medicare will reimburse a wider range of healthcare services to beneficiaries in rehab and skilled nursing care. It’s called the Patient Driven Payment Model, and it dramatically expands your options.
With more than 15 years’ experience in meeting AMI clients’ needs, Shea will explain how this new Medicare plan works and offer tips on how to evaluate your portfolio of insurance plans.
