Acute Rehabilitation Unit

Insurance Eligibility

St. Anthony’s Medical Center accepts Medicare, Missouri Medicaid, Managed Care, Worker’s Compensation, self-pay patients and most private/commercial insurances.

For patients and their families who are seeking acute rehabilitation services, we can help determine insurance eligibility.

Of particular note is a revision to federal law that went into effect in January 2008.  The Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP Extension Act (MMSEA) was revised to lower the admitting threshold for inpatient rehabilitation facilities. The change means that more patients are now eligible for in-hospital rehabilitation services including those who may not meet specific rehabilitation diagnoses, but instead have complex medical issues that would benefit from acute rehabilitation services.

If you feel that a patient would benefit from acute rehabilitation services, call us to discuss insurance eligibility requirements. 314-525-7226
