We bill Medicare for inpatient and outpatient services. Supplemental insurance will also be billed at the patient’s request if information is provided. Patients are responsible for any charges not covered by Medicare and/or supplemental insurance.

- Part B Outpatient Deductible: (covers Medicare eligible physician services, outpatient hospital services, certain home health services, Durable medical equipment and ambulance services),
- Skilled Nursing Facility Co-insurance (Days 1-20 Medicare covers, days 21-100 covers on a per day rate, and covers all costs for each day beyond 100 days)
In addition to your deductible, you may be liable for co-insurance.
