Planning

At Cambridge Place Senior Care we believe in education—for our employees, our residents, and their families. We think it’s critical that you learn some key facts about nursing homes and how we care for our residents so that you’ll understand what’s happening when you visit and what your loved one is experiencing while they’re staying with us.

 

Financial Planning

We find that most of our families have questions that fall into one or more of the categories listed below. If you have a question that isn’t listed here, please give us a call or ask when you visit us. We will do our best to make sure that you get the answers you need.

  1. Will Medicare pay for my stay?

  2. What resources are available when resident’s funds are limited or non-existent?

  3. What do the daily room and board rates cover?

  4. What insurance do you accept?

  5. What steps will I need to take to place my loved in your facility?

1. Will Medicare pay for my stay?

 

You must meet these conditions for Medicare Part A to help pay for your care in a nursing home:

  • You need to have been in the hospital for at least three midnights before you go to a skilled nursing home. Your care must begin within 30 days after you leave the hospital.

  • Your doctor must order daily skilled nursing or rehabilitation services that you can get only in a skilled nursing home. "Daily" means seven days a week for skilled nursing services and five days a week or more for skilled rehabilitation services.

  • You must get these skilled services in a nursing home that has been approved by Medicare.

If you meet these conditions, Medicare pays for up to 100 days in a benefit period. After a qualifying hospital stay, a benefit period begins the day you are admitted into the hospital swing bed or skilled nursing home. The benefit period ends when you have been out of the hospital or skilled nursing home for at least 60 days in a row. You pay a Part A deductible ($1,024 in 2008) for each new benefit period. How much have you and Medicare paid for skilled nursing home care? 

 

What does Medicare pay for?

 

If you need care in a skilled nursing home at a later time, you must again meet the same conditions for Medicare to help pay for your care.

 

In a skilled nursing home, Medicare helps pays for:

  • A semi-private room

  • Meals

  • Skilled nursing and rehabilitative services

  • Medical social services

  • Prescription drugs, medical supplies and equipment

  • Possible ambulance service

  • Dietary counseling

Services not included under Medicare Part B:

  • Routine physical examinations and tests

  • Routine foot care

  • Eye or hearing exams for prescribing or fitting eyeglasses or hearing aids

  • Immunizations other than for the flu or pneumonia

2. What resources are available when resident’s funds are limited or non-existent?

 

How to Apply for Medicaid
Blue Valley Senior Living will continue to meet a resident’s needs in the nursing home while families assist in the application process for medical assistance. Medical assistance (Medicaid) is a government program that pays for nursing home care after a resident has used all of their assets, except $2,000 (certain assets are exempt, such as an irrevocable burial reserve). There are also regulations that allow a spouse to retain a portion of a couple’s income.

 

For persons in assisted living with limited or no financial resources, some assistance is available through the state of Kansas. This assistance will likely be Medicaid or Home and Community Based Services (HCBS). To determine whether one qualifies for this assistance and how one qualifies; contact the Kansas Department of Aging and Disabilities Services (KDADS) office nearest you. This is critical as some assistance requires personal resources to be spent down to a certain level and other assistance requires being placed on a waiting list.

 

Our years of experience in health care give us knowledge of the various ways your care can be financed. We will work with you to make sure you get all the help that is available.

3. What do the daily room and board rates cover?

Blue Valley Senior Living offers many different types of services: we are a Skilled Medicare Nursing Facility where we provide long and short term care, dementia care, hospice care, respite care and Senior Day Services to home care-givers that need time away. In addition Assisted Living is available at the Cambridge Place campus. All of our options offer semi-private and private rooms. It is easier to mention what the applicable per day charges don't cover than what they do cover.

 

Blue Valley Senior Living room and board rates are inclusive and cover most everything with the exception of medications, nursing supplies, telephone service and at times special equipment and/or services specific to the resident.

4. What insurance do you accept?

Long term care insurance can protect personal assets and inheritance for the family and provide greater choice in the selection of long term care settings (nursing and assisted living facilities).


We accept a variety of long-term care insurance payers. Our business office will assist you in filing claims and accessing your benefits. Please speak with the individual facility for more information and specific guidelines.

5. What steps will I need to take to place my loved in your facility?

Prior to or upon admission the Social Service Designee or Medical Records Coordinator will schedule an appointment to meet with the resident and/or the responsible party to complete the required information. This is an important time to assure all your questions are answered and that the resident will be assisted in adjustment to our facilities. This appointment generally required 30-45 minutes.

 

You will be asked to provide the following information at this appointment for the facility to make copies:

  • C.A.R.E. assessment certificate from area on aging

  • Medicare card

  • Social security card

  • Supplemental insurance cards

  • Power of attorney, guardianship, living will, power of attorney for health care, conservatorship

  • Name of dentist and eye doctor

  • Name, address, phone numbers, email, for responsible parties, emergency contacts, family members or friends.
