We anticipate our families to have many questions and we do understand.
Here are some of these often-asked questions:
How much does it cost to stay at Jacksonville Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
Our semi-private room rate is $178.51 per day, which includes room and board, three meals per day, recreation, and nursing care. This fee does not include medications, rehabilitation, oxygen, hair care (other than shampooing during shower), and other items like disposable undergarments.
However, many of our residents come to stay with us after hospitalization. Medicare is available as payment for eligible recipients after three consecutive qualifying midnight stays in a hospital, and when skilled nursing care is medically necessary.
Medicare can pay for your stay for up to 100 days. During days 1 through 20, Medicare pays all charges associated with your stay. During days 21 through 100, Medicare pays all charges less a resident paid co-payment. In 2017, $164.50 per day for the Medicare copay. Many residents have private insurance that will take care of the co-payment. Medicare will not pay for respite stays or daycare.
Medicaid (Illinois Public Aid) will pay all costs incurred while staying at a nursing facility if the resident qualifies financially. Sometimes patients will use their Medicare benefits first, and then become private pay or Medicaid residents.
Payor source has no effect on care; in fact, most of our staff do not know who is on Medicaid, Medicare, insurance, or private pay.
