Vinson Hall Retirement Community has announced that Arleigh Burke Pavilion’s Health Care Center is now open to Medicare Part A admissions.
Residents and incoming patients must be enrolled in Medicare A and have a three day minimum hospital stay. A doctor must certify that the patient will require daily skilled nursing or therapy after being discharged from the hospital.
Arleigh Burke Pavilion’s Health Care center is licensed for 49 beds and can take most Medicare covered illnesses, injuries and rehabilitation. Medicare will cover days one through 20 for required services such as a semi-private room, meals, skilled nursing, rehabilitation services and other services and supplies that are medically necessary for a related illness or injury. For days 21 through 100, 80 percent of expenses will be covered by Medicare and the patient is responsible for the co-pay.
As a skilled nursing facility, Arleigh Burke Pavilion will be surveyed by both federal and state standards. With the expansion of Vinson Hall Retirement Community, due to open in mid-2014, there will be a rehabilitation unit in the new Community Building focused on short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing services for Medicare-eligible patients.
As Vinson Hall Retirement Community continues with their mission through this new development, it has committed to renovating several apartments to serve as transitional housing for Wounded Warriors who stand to benefit from a supportive environment close to our nation’s capital that can accommodate their unique needs. Donations to the Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds to support the mission and vision of Vinson Hall Retirement Community, can be made in support of the Wounded Warrior Transitional Housing at Vinson Hall, via the website at www.vinsonhall.org.
