Medicare is a federally funded government program that is also administered by the federal government. It is essentially government health insurance for individuals over the age of 65 with limited scope and coverage. With regular Medicare and certain qualification, you can receive full coverage on 20 days of long-term care or 100 days of long-term care with daily co-pay. The benefits are slightly more favorable with Medicare Advantage, but the bottom line is that for most people needing long-term care, Medicare is not sufficient to meet their needs, as they normally need to stay in skilled nursing for longer than 100 days.

Medicaid is a federally funded government program that is administered by the state government to help certain qualified individuals pay for long-term nursing home care. Long-term healthcare is extremely expensive, so in many instances, Medicaid is the best or only option to help pay for your or your loved one’s skilled nursing care.
