MANAGED CARE PLANS
WHAT DOES MEDICARE COVER?
If you’re a Cypress member and need skilled nursing care, Medicare Part A will pay for a semi-private room, meals, nursing care, rehabilitation services, medications, and medical equipment for the first 20 days at The Stewart Health Center.
From day 21-100, you will pay a daily co-insurance rate; however, if you have a supplemental insurance plan, it may cover all or part of days 21-100.
After 100 days, Medicare Part A will no longer pay for or subsidize your stay at The Stewart Health Center. If you have Medicare Part B, it may cover some of your rehabilitative services.
HOW IS ELIGIBILITY FOR MEDICARE PART A DETERMINED?
– You must have a Medicare card that reads hospital insurance.
– Your physician must certify that you need skilled nursing care on a continuing basis.
– You must have spent a minimum of 3 consecutive days (not counting the day of discharge) in a hospital no more than 30 days before entering the skilled nursing center.
– The need for skilled care must relate to the reason for hospitalization.
DO YOU ACCEPT MANAGED CARE PLANS?
Yes; however, the plan requires authorization before admission is granted.
CAN MY PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR SEE ME DURING MY STAY AT THE STEWART?
Yes, but it’s far more common for our medical director to act as your primary physician during your stay.
WHAT IS YOUR STAFF-TO-RESIDENT RATIO?
We’re committed to giving every resident of The Stewart Health Center the personalized care and attention they need. For that reason, it’s our policy to exceed the staffing mandates laid out by the state of North Carolina.

IS THE MEMORY CARE PRIVATE PAY?
Yes, although you can potentially use a long-term care insurance policy to defray the costs.
WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE OFFERED TO MEMORY CARE RESIDENTS?
