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).
