Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Coverage
Recovering from an illness takes time and sometimes requires skilled care outside of your own home. A Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) can help you get back to your pre-illness level of functioning. After discharge from an inpatient hospitalization, your doctor and the medical management team at EmblemHealth may determine that a stay in an SNF is best for your optimal recovery. Often a stay in an SNF is the needed step between the hospital and your own home.
While you are in an SNF, you will have a skilled nursing or rehabilitation staff to treat, manage, observe and evaluate your care. Skilled nursing and rehabilitation staff includes:
- Registered nurses.
- Licensed practical and vocational nurses.
- Physical and occupational therapists.
- Speech-language pathologists and audiologists.
EmblemHealth wants to make your stay in an SNF as beneficial to you as possible. If you, your caregiver or your family have questions, please call us at 1-888-447-0294 and press #2.
