Skilled Care Coordinator—540.265.2224
When a patient is admitted for skilled care covered by the Medicare program, the facility’s skilled care coordinator in the MDS Department is responsible for monitoring the progress of the care and continued eligibility for Medicare coverage. For any questions regarding skilled coverage, please contact our MDS Manager at 540.265.2224.
Medicare only covers care related to specific services for limited time periods. When skilled services are no longer required, Medicare coverage will cease. Medicare coverage can never exceed 100 days for a single spell of illness. Each resident or family should be contacted by your social worker within the first week of admission to schedule a Care Plan meeting. This meeting will cover care details, including discharge plans.
