Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF)
Inpatient SNF care (up to 100 days per benefit period) includes room and board, skilled nursing care and other customarily provided services in a Medicare plan.
Original Medicare requires a three (3) consecutive day inpatient hospital stay in order to qualify for skilled nursing facility benefits. This requirement is waived for MediGold members.
SNF must notify MediGold of member's discharge from the facility within two business days of discharge.
