Insurance network verification does not mean that post-acute care or skilled nursing services are covered under a patient’s insurance policy, it only verifies that provider is part of the insurance network and eligible for reimbursement from the insurance company. A patient’s individual insurance policy determines what post-acute care services are covered and paid for. repisodic encourages all patients to consult with their insurance company or administrator for final determination of what post-acute care or skilled nursing services their policy covers.
