Your Medicare Coverage
Is my test, item, or service covered?
How often is it covered?
Long-term care is a range of services and support for your personal care needs. Most long-term care isn't medical care. Instead, most long-term care is help with basic personal tasks of everyday life, sometimes called activities of daily living.
Medicare does cover:
- Care in a long-term care hospital
- Skilled nursing care in a skilled nursing facility
- Eligible home health services
- Hospice & respite care
You may also want to think about choices other than nursing home care.
Visit LongTermCare.gov for information and resources to help you and your family plan for future long-term care needs.
