Frequently asked questions about long-term acute care:

What is a long-term acute care hospital?
A long-term acute care hospital or LTACH is a special hospital licensed to provide acute care services to patients that require an extended length of stay, usually 20 to 30 days. Patients are expected to recover and discharge to home or another setting with lower levels of care needed.

What is the difference between LTACH services and skilled nursing and rehabilitation care?
LTACHs provide daily physician visits, an acute care environment with specially trained nurses and therapists, and access to continuing diagnostic and treatment procedures.

Are LTACH services covered by Medicare or other private insurance?
As with any hospital care, patients must meet certain criteria. Our pre-screening staff assesses all patients for criteria. If the admission criteria are met, Medicare and most insurance will approve the necessary stay.
