Can a medicaid patient living in a nursing home be charged a bed hold fee at the nursing home during a hospital stay?
Answer No They Can't. The only way that they can be charged is if they are stupid enough to believe something like this. Alot of people will just pay it anyway because …they don't want to cause an argument or be embaressed by causing a fuss about it. --I work in a nursing home & do the billing. The bed hold fee can be charged to the resident/family. The fee is there is ensure that the bed is still there...in other words, that residents items/clothes etc, are not moved from their room. Normally, if the bed hold is not paid, or the family does not want it, the items in that room will be packed up in a certain # of days and ready for the family to come and get. Each nursing home will or should hv some type of policy about this. (R) I work in a nursing home as well. Medicaid will cover a bed hold for up to 14 days per year. Anything over 14 days will be private pay and will be billed to the resident or the POA whichever is appropriate.

Joe Jedlowski, It is a simple concept: living life to its fullest with a little assistance. Residents of assisted living can enjoy private apartments, restaurant style dinning…, and an array of activities tailored to their interests and abilities, all while getting the extra help they need and making new friends.
The real difference between a nursing home and an assisted living facility is the level of intimate care offered. For example, in a senior assisted living facility, residents …have their own small apartments, frequently equipped with kitchenettes, and are responsible for their basic personal hygiene. Although they may eat main meals in a large dining hall with other residents, they may be allowed to fix themselves small snacks and meals. They require little to no assistance with toileting and hygiene. In a senior nursing home, residents frequently live in smaller quarters and have more involved assistance from staff. They have help with day-to-day activities and routines and are less independent than those who reside in a assisted living facility.
