When will Medicare pay for skilled nursing facility (SNF) care?
Medicare may help pay for skilled nursing facility care if: • You need skilled nursing care seven days a week or skilled therapy services at least five days a week; • You were formally admitted as an inpatient to a hospital* for at least three consecutive days in the 30 days prior to admission in a Medicare-certified skilled nursing facility; and • You have Medicare Part A before you are discharged from the hospital. *Note: If you are admitted to the emergency room under observation or only receive emergency room services, this time does not count toward meeting the three-day prior hospital requirement for SNF coverage.
