  • Daily professional nursing supervision and licensed nursing care
  • Restorative care
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Assistance in meeting daily living needs 

Medical supervision is necessary on a regular, but not daily, basis.

Payment Source Types:

  • Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) - Medicare-only and private pay
  • Nursing Facility (NF) - Medicaid-only and private pay
  • Skilled Nursing Facility & Nursing Facility (SNF/NF) - Both Medicare & Medicaid and private pay
