    For any eligible beneficiary needing skilled nursing or skilled rehabilitation consistent with Medicare coverage criteria, Medicare Part A coverage will pay for a semi-private suite, meals, nursing services, rehabilitation services, medications, supplies and durable medical equipment for up to 100 days. For the first 20 days in a nursing home, Medicare covers 100 percent of skilled care. From Day 21 through Day 100, the patient must pay a daily co-insurance rate. Medicare covers days based on medical necessity. 

    Patients who are eligible for the services covered under Medicare Part B will be responsible for an annual deductible plus 20% of the total charges for services such as occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy, as well as medical supplies.
