Skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers are health care facilities licensed and regulated by the State in which they operate. These facilities offer either short-term and/or long-term care to those with temporary or permanent health problems too complex for home. Adora specializes in short-term rehabilitative care only and is not a nursing home.
In some cases, each length of stay is 10 days or less depending on your medical needs.
Adora accepts most major commercial insurance policies, Medicare Replacement Plans, and traditional Medicare for patients needing short-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation.
Adora also accepts Texas nursing home Medicaid for patients needing long-term care.
Traditional Medicare covers up to 100 days in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) depending on your diagnosis. Days 1-20 are covered at 100%. Days 21-100 require payment of a $161.00 copay. Copays may be covered completely or partially by secondary supplemental insurance policies and Medicaid.
It is possible that you may have out-of-network benefits. This is something that our admissions staff regularly checks for and can help you with. In some cases, we can request single-case agreements with your insurance.
Adora offers discharge planning from a trained Social Worker/Discharge Planner to assist you (or your loved one) when you are ready to discharge from our facility. Our Social Worker/Discharge Planner will help you prepare to return home and work with your insurance company or Medicare to obtain any equipment you may need after returning home.
Adora’s full-time Clinical Liaisons are available to meet you in person at the hospital. Our team of Clinical Liaisons are knowledgeable about the types of care we can provide, the admissions process, and other important information you will need to know before selecting a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF). This team is intended to serve as a resource to patients, patient families, and hospital professionals considering a temporary placement with a SNF.
Skilled nursing care is a high level of medical care that must be provided by licensed health professionals, such as registered nurses (RNs) and physical, speech, and occupational therapists. These services can be necessary for a short or long period of time. Examples of skilled nursing services include wound care, injections, catheter care, monitoring of vital signs and medical equipment. Skilled nursing care provided in any setting for any duration must be ordered by a doctor to be covered by Medicare, Medicaid, the VA, private health insurance, or private pay funds.
Nursing Homes are now more commonly referred to as skilled nursing facilities (SNFs),- and serve as licensed healthcare residences for individuals who require a higher level of medical care than can be provided in an assisted living facility or at home. Skilled nursing staff consisting of RNs, LVNs and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) are available to provide around-the-clock medical attention. SNFs are commonly used for short-term rehabilitative stays, which are (at least) partially covered by traditional Medicare or insurance policies. Traditional Medicare and most insurance policies, however, do not pay for long-term or permanent stays in SNFs . Medicaid does cover extended stays in SNFs for seniors with limited assets and low income who have medical needs that cannot be met in the home setting. In order to be certified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), SNFs meet strict criteria and are subject to periodic inspections to ensure that quality standards are being met.
