What is Medicare? What is Medicaid?

Information regarding benefits under Medicare and Medicaid is available from our Admissions team, the Administrator or Social Services. The information below is general, and the programs are subject to change.

Medicare – a Federal health insurance program for individuals who are 65 years or older, have been disabled for at least two consecutive years, have been diagnosed with End-Stage Renal Disease or meet eligibility based on other criteria set by the Medicare program.

Medicaid is an assistance program. It serves low-income people of every age. Patients usually pay no part of the costs for covered medical expenses. A small co-payment is sometimes required. Medicaid is a federal-state program. It varies from stat to state. It is run by state and local governments within federal guidelines.
