Does anyone know what "Medicare Eligible Bed" means?
I found a residence run by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm that has Medicare Eligible beds. Without Medicare, their fee runs up to $97,400 per year or $267.00 per day.
For a Medicare Eligible resident, Medicare Part A will pay (for 2012), $144.50 toward the per-diem (per day) charge.
Have any of you encountered this situation and know what it takes to become Medicare Eligible?
