Medicare

Medicare is a multi-part program under Title 18 of the Social Security Act.

Medicare Part A

The 86 skilled nursing beds at Evergreen - Creekview North and South and South long-term skilled nursing and Creekview Rehabilitation Center - are certified for Medicare Part A coverage. This means that if a resident meets the specific criteria of a 3-day qualifying hospital stay and the need for skilled rehabilitation or skilled nursing services on a daily basis, Medicare A may pay up to a maximum of 100 days of a nursing home stay.

Medicare Part B

Residents living at Evergreen may find that Medicare B will assist with payments for ancillary services such as lab, x-ray and therapy. Medicare B may also assist with paying for the cost of durable medical equipment such as canes and walkers if a physician has ordered them.

Medicare Part D

Medicare D is an optional prescription drug benefit which has been created to assist the elderly in paying for prescription drugs. There are many plans with a wide variety of options from which to choose.
