My father has been in a SNF since December first. Medicare pulled out after 20 days and we have been paying out of pocket since then, having had the second appeal just denied. Is it possible one nursing home might have different recommendations to Medicare re. amount of care required by resident than another? Does it make sense to get opinions from other facilities? Oh yes...my father ended up at this SNF after a hospital stay subsequent to a bad fall in AL where he was on 30 day notice for discharge because his needs were too great. They are certainly greater, now.
