Millions of Americans over the age of 65, as well as some disabled individuals under the age of 65, are eligible to receive Medicare benefits. In terms of skilled nursing, this Medicare coverage is crucial in offsetting some of the expense. Depending on your loved one’s level of care and need, their Medicare benefits may pay for some of their short-term costs.
