Nursing home care

How often is it covered?

Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) may cover care given in a certified skilled nursing facility (SNF) if it's medically necessary for you to have skilled nursing care (like changing sterile dressings). However, most nursing home care is custodial care, like help with bathing or dressing. Medicare doesn't cover custodial care if that's the only care you need.
