When a Resident Goes to a Skilled Nursing Bed (Medicare)

When a resident is in a Medicare bed and doesn’t have a patient liability they would have their full income and that would allow them to pay the premium.  So the resident (or family) would be responsible for paying the premium.

If the facility receives the SS Check for the resident, then the facility needs to let Senior Care Solutions know if the resident is going to a Medicare bed.

Senior Care Solutions will contact the family about making the premium payments until the resident gets back on Medicaid.
