Last month my father fell and went to the ER then on to rehab. It was work to find a rehab that would take anyone at this point. He stayed for 40 days which took him through 100% coverage and 80% coverage. AL required two negative Covid tests before re-admittance. His first test was on the 1st and it was negative. The first issue was rehab dropped the ball and did not retest him until the 16th for a 19th discharge date. Test results did not come back in time and they told me if he had to spend the weekend it would be at 100% self pay. At $500 a day I was not happy. Test results come in late on the 19th and they are positive. He has been moved to their covid wing but I haven't received a confirmation that his extended stay will be covered by Medicare. One person said it was covered and another wasn't sure. It is assumed he will be there for most of July and we cannot afford $500 a day especially when they are responsible for his exposure.
Has anyone else had experience with this? Is it covered?
