Skilled Nursing FAQs

Have a question about Skilled Nursing? Here are answers to some frequently asked questions.

How is Skilled Nursing financed?
Long-term care insurance is a helpful option and has lower premiums when purchased preemptively. Medicare will pay in certain circumstances, such as in the case of injury and accident. Medicare will only last as long as recovery is occurring. In the situation where a resident does not have the necessary funding and other options are unavailable, Medicaid may provide assistance. Generations helps residents secure funding through resources and documentation guidance.
