Understanding How Medicare Can Support You During Your Rehabilitation
If you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s important to take the time to understand how Medicare works and what is covered when you require rehabilitation.
Medicare provides healthcare coverage for people who are 65 years of age or older, or those who qualify with certain disabilities.
Medicare Part A is commonly known as hospital insurance and will cover inpatient stay at hospitals, nursing facilities and other health care options. Medicare Part B is commonly referred to as medical insurance and can be used to cover the costs of doctors’ services, medical supplies and outpatient care. Medicare covers outpatient therapy at 80% of the Medicare-approved amount. This would cover Complete Rehab and our services.
A federally funded program, Medicare can be used to cover different services you may need after an injury, and as of 2018, there are no limits for how much outpatient therapy a person may use with Medicare; however your therapist will have to prove that your treatment is medically necessary if your therapy costs exceed $2,010.
