Many people believe Medicare Advantage plans will pay for long term care stays in a Nursing Home or in an Assisted Living Apartment facility in Florida, but it DOES NOT!. Not in Miami Dade, Broward nor in Palm Beach County.


Medicare Advantage plans will only pay for skilled care services / therapy services in Florida. They will pay for what is called, Short-Term Care in a (SNF) Skilled Nursing Home Facility. Also, these SNF are called Rehab, or Rehabilitation Center.

These type of Care facilities are dedicated for someone who needs special care after leaving a hospital stay and it is prescribed by a physician. The number of days covered by these Medicare Advantage plans are determined by the network which the person is a part of.


So, Medicare Advantage plans will give you Rehabilitation Services in a Skilled Nursing Facility (Nursing Home) or in a Rehabilitation Center for a short period of time as long as it was approved by your provider.


When thinking about costs, keep in mind that there can be extra, out of pocket charges for supplies, personal care, such as hair appointments, laundry, and services that are outside routine care that are not covered by your healthcare insurance.

After your short-term rehabilitation stay in a Rehabilitation Center or Skilled Nursing Center the patient will be transferred to Home, Long term Care unit or into an Assisted living Facility or an Independent Living Community.
