Inpatient Therapy / Long Term Care with Medicaid

My father had a stroke in July and at the time he didn't qualify for therapy... he was in a semi vegetative state & required a peg tube. He was discharged to a skilled nursing home & his prognosis was not great. We started the process of applying for Medicaid for long term care which he was approved for. However, my father was a fighter and began to recover quickly! He was receiving some therapy at the nursing home & it was being covered by Medicare but he's run out of coverage for it. My question is... Can he still get inpatient therapy at an actual rehab center/hospital and who would cover it? We were told if he left the nursing home he'd lose his medicaid benefits. My dad is doing so well right now and he needs and wants more of it. My family and I are not sure what to do. Any help would be great.

Hi Eimmah... I'm glad to hear your father is improving.  We are not familiar with the Medicare and Medicaid policies on this particular forum, I'm sorry :(  I'm sure you could research this further on other parts of the internet.  

I hope your father continues to improve and we send many hugs and prayers to you and your family.
