Rates and payment

Colorado State Veterans Home at Walsenburg


Long-term care

Additional VA benefits may be available for wartime veterans and their widows/spouses. Staff can assist with residents’ applications for both VA benefits and Medicaid.


Below are our rates for long-term/nursing home care as of Oct. 1, 2011. The rates include the cost of all medications, restorative therapies, oxygen, incontinence products, other medical supplies, wheelchairs, primary care physician services and transportation to other medical appointments. Every effort is made to keep these rates current. However, please verify the rates with the facility admission staff.

Short-term rehabilitation
 

Medicare typically will cover the cost of short-term rehabilitation services for up to 20 days for individuals who meet Medicare Part A eligibility requirements and who need short-term rehabilitation services after a qualified hospital stay. After the first 20 days, a portion of the short-term rehabilitation cost must be paid by supplemental insurance or by the patient/family. Medicare coverage depends on patient’s progress and other Medicare rules. For more information, please contact our admissions office.
