Villa Rosa Nursing and Rehabilitation
“How much will a stay cost?”
“Can I afford it?”
“What are my financial obligations?”
Although the most appropriate method of payment will vary depending on your individual
circumstances, our business office staff understands the financial options available
to you and can find answers to your questions.
Below is a brief overview of payment options which include, but may not be limited
Most people over the age of 65 receive or are eligible for Medicare, the federally-funded
healthcare program that pays 100% of covered services for the first 20 days of each
benefit period in a skilled nursing facility. Eligibility for Medicare coverage
depends on several factors, so please consult our Business Office about your specific
situation. Medicare is also available to people younger than 65 who have certain
disabilities and for people with long-term kidney failure.
Health insurance policies are available that pay for care in skilled nursing and
rehabilitation centers. Some policies pay what Medicare doesn’t cover, while other
policies pay a pre-determined dollar figure per day toward the cost of care. Still
others pay the full daily rate plus the cost of supplies and medications for a maximum
number of days or dollar amount. If possible, we will bill your insurance company
Some individuals choose to use personal funds to pay for part or all of their nursing
care or therapy services. Because situations vary dramatically, we suggest that you contact us
by phone at (301) 459-4700 to discuss our flexible options.
Medicaid (or Medical Assistance)
Medicaid is a joint federal/state program that pays for most medical care for people
who meet strict eligibility requirements. To qualify, typically you must have a
medical need for round-the-clock nursing care or for rehabilitation services and
be unable to pay your medical bills. Our Business Office will help you determine
your eligibility for Medicaid coverage.
