Sent to rehab from hospital. Now may need long term care or home care 24/7. Help! Dad has Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal Employees and Medicare Part B. I was told upon admittance to rehab/nursing facility that he would be covered for 100 days if he continued to progress. Found out yesterday (45 days later) that is not true with Medicare Part B. Does anyone know if it is too late for him to obtain Medicare Part A? He worked for the federal govt for 30 years and this is what he has to show for it! No coverage. Also hospice care appears to only be covered by Part A as well. So if he ever needs that, it would be out of pocket too?
