Will Medicare pay for Alzheimer’s care?
The cost to care for a senior patient suffering from Alzheimer may receive some benefits from Medicare. In most instances Medicare will not pay for all of the stay. Medicare covers inpatient hospital care and some of the doctors’ fees and other medical items for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia who are age 65 or older. Medicare Part D also covers many prescription drugs. Medicare will pay for up to 100 days of skilled nursing home care under limited circumstances. However, custodial long-term nursing home care is not covered. If you have more questions Bobbie can help answer them at 310-699-3000
