How do I pay for my care?
There are several options to pay for care. You can pay a private daily rate if you have private funds. We accept most long term care insurances which pay for your room and board either partially or in-full. We accept Medicaid and if you have had a three day, inpatient hospital stay, Medicare will pay for your stay up to 100 days.
Can I keep my own physician?
No, you can not keep your own physician. Mary Wade is proud to work with exceptional physicians from The Yale New Haven Geriatric services and those physicians will care for your loved one. You must keep any specialty doctor such as your cardiologist, orthopedist, or neurologists, etc.
What is included in the daily rate?
The daily rate includes room and board, housekeeping, laundry, recreation, and dietary services. Medications and treatments, MD visits, oxygen and mental health services are billed to your insurance first and any co-pays are your responsibility. For Medicaid residents all services are billed to T-19.
Do you have a waiting list for long term care?
Mary Wade has a waiting list for long term care. Once an application is received your loved one will be placed on our waiting list. Phone calls are made periodically to keep the list current.
