Admissions

The admission process can be overwhelming, and our staff is here to answer questions and ease worry. A thorough pre-admission assessment is completed utilizing information from the physician, resident, and family to ensure the resident is appropriately placed within our facility. Admissions are from several sources: hospitals, homes, or other health care facilities. The admission staff is user-friendly and available for questions related to future placement planning.

 

For questions and further information on Admissions, contact the Social Services Department at 815.217-0322.

 

Each resident must execute a Resident Contract prior to admission

Medicare Parts A & B

Medicare A covers acute care (e.g., hospital stays) and, if certain qualifying conditions are met, up to 100 days in a skilled facility. In long-term care, the Part A benefit usually means intensive rehabilitation service to speed recovery.

Medicare B usually covers outpatient visits (such as physician visits, diagnostic tests, therapy sessions). Part B benefits do not apply when a Medicare beneficiary is in a covered Part A stay.

Medicare D is Medicare's prescription drug coverage program. This program became effective January 1, 2006. Those eligible for Medicare are also eligible to participate in the Part D program. Participants may chose a plan, all of which are run by private companies. There are premiums and other participation requirements, but the intent of the program was cost savings to consumers for prescription drugs.

 

The facility utilizes Omnicare of Northern Illinois as its pharmacy provider. Omnicare honors most prescription drug plans approved by Medicare D. If a resident is enrolled in a plan that is not honored by Omnicare, Medicare D allows for a change to a plan that is. Our facility utilizes only one pharmacy so there is a uniform dispensing system in place. This provides the safest, most cost effective method of medication administration.

Billing Practices

DCRNC bills monthly for all services. We will bill for your Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance coverages.

For Medicaid residents, a portion of the Social Security check is designated for our use toward payment of your monthly charges. The remainder of the Social Security check is placed in our Resident Trust Fund and maintained for the resident.
