Medicare, Medicaid, Insurance Plans, and Private Pay
The Rehabilitation Center of Des Moines accepts Medicare, Medicaid and a variety of insurance health plans and private payment to cover the costs of your stay.
Medicare – Part A Stay
After a three night stay in an acute care hospital (or within 30 days of discharge from the hospital), you may be eligible for up to 100 skilled nursing days per benefit period. Should you require skilled nursing and/or rehabilitative services related to your initial hospitalization, Medicare will cover the first twenty days at 100%. There is a co-payment amount for days 21-100.
The center will bill Medicare directly. Any co-payments will be your responsibility. As a courtesy, we may bill your secondary health plan. You will be informed in writing when Medicare will no longer cover your stay.
Medicaid is funded by the State and Federal governments. Depending on your care needs, Medicaid may cover your stay. You may or may not have to contribute a portion of the monthly charges.
We participate with a variety of insurance plans and we’ll be happy to contact your health plan and bill the plan directly as a courtesy. Each health plan offers different benefits. Please review your health plan handbook for details.
Many residents requiring long-term services are responsible for the majority of costs associated with a long-term care stay. Payment is made directly to the center each month.
