Will Medicare pay for my nursing home costs?

Medicare only pays for a limited period in a Nursing Home and only when you are receiving skilled care such as therapy or rehabilitation. For most Nursing Home costs, you will need to pay privately or apply for Medicaid coverage when you are financially eligible.
