When I moved mom from Kentucky to Florida, she had been in a rehab post acute facility for about a month. So, Medicare paid for the first 20 days.
Four days ago mom fell and broke her leg, so she is in the hospital now, and had surgery this morning. I am guessing that she will be released in a few days to a rehab facility.
Can someone tell me if my memory serves me correct, and that Medicare will not pay for the first 20 days of rehab, because mom was in rehab about seven weeks ago? I thought that I remembered that Medicare will not pay for rehab, if they have previously paid the first 20 days of rehab, within 90 days.
I hope that I am wrong, because I feel like I’m in such a pickle right now. If mom has to be in rehab for one week to four weeks, and her long-term care insurance is paying for the assisted living facility, then that means I’m gonna have to pay what is due at the rehab facility daily. Ugh. :-(
