A stay longer than 30 days in a nursing care facility may not be covered by Medicare and other insurances. Read AARP’s Understanding Long-Term Care Insurance and the MDHHS Nursing Home Eligibility booklet for answers to common questions.

Medicaid benefits may be available for those who quality. Contact a MichiganMedicare/Medicaid Assistance Program (MMAP) counselor at 800-803-7174 for more information.
