Medicaid– A joint state and federal program administered by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, which pays for care in skilled nursing homes and intermediate care facilities. A physician must certify the need for this level of care, and the patient must be income eligible for Medicaid benefits. Medicaid is a welfare program run by the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services. However the Missouri Department of Family Services is the state agency which actually takes applications and makes eligibility determinations for Medicaid.
To be eligible, your income and assets must be below a certain level. If your income or assets are over the limit, you may be ineligible or you may qualify for Spend-Down.

Medicare Part B (medical insurance)*: Covers doctors visits, outpatient care, and other medical services.
*Medicare (Part A&B) – Medicare (Part A) pays for skilled nursing care after a 3-day qualifying hospital stay in many cases. You may access this benefit within 30 days of discharge from the hospital.

You will be responsible for paying deductible and co-insurance amounts. Our qualified staff at Festus Manor Care Center can provide additional information regarding these benefits.
