Financial Considerations

How Much Will Short-Term Rehabilitation Cost?

The short-term rehabilitation facility you choose is an important decision. While you want to pick the best facility possible, you can’t ignore the factor of price. How much will your short-term rehabilitation center cost, and can you afford the facility that you want?

The answers to these questions will depend on a number of factors that are unique to your situation.

How Long Will You Stay?

It shouldn’t be surprising that the longer you stay at a short-term rehabilitation center, the higher the price tag will rise. Some residents may only need to stay a few weeks, while others may need months to fully heal.

What Services Do You Need?

All short-term rehabilitation facilities provide quality nursing staff and physical therapists, but do you need the help of additional specialists, like a speech therapist or occupational therapists? The amount of care you receive may affect the cost of your stay.

Health Insurance and Medicare Coverage

Medicare does cover short term rehabilitation care for a certain length of time. If you receive Medicare, you may face little or no cost for your short-term rehabilitations care if you stay within the coverage window. If you have private health insurance, it is important to review your policy standards. Some policies may cover some or all short-term rehab costs, or they may cover your costs once you meet your yearly deductible (which is probably easy after your hospital stay).
