Get the facts about choosing an inpatient rehabilitation facility

Whether you are in the hospital or not recovering well at home, you can choose where to go for rehabilitation and recovery.

Finding a comprehensive rehabilitation hospital that meets your needs is key, as every person’s condition requires its own specific treatment. With an inpatient rehabilitation hospital such as Encompass Health, your recovery starts with a specialized rehabilitation team and physicians.

You may get a referral to a different kind of facility. Thankfully, you have the right to make your own informed decision.

Medicare patients are covered for inpatient rehabilitation at Encompass Health.

Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) covers medically necessary care in a rehabilitation hospital such as Encompass Health. Your doctor must first certify that your medical condition requires intensive rehabilitation, continued medical supervision and coordinated care.

If you or a loved one is not recovering well at home, inpatient rehabilitation is still an option.

Maybe your at-home recovery isn’t going very well following a stroke or other debilitating condition causing functional and cognitive decline. Contact Encompass Health directly or ask your doctor for a referral.
