What are the Medicare Inpatient Benefits?

An unexpected stay in a hospital can be bad enough for the emotional and physical reasons, the financial destruction is yet another byproduct. People who are enrolled in Medicare may not know what to do if they are suddenly and unexpectedly thrown into the hospital for a stay. Just what benefits are available to Medicare subscribers for this situation can be confusing so here is a little background.

You will get access to a semi-private room, general nursing to help you through the ailment or injury that was the cause of your visit and meals for you. Medicare inpatient benefits will also pay for the drugs to treat the cause and for your access to hospital services and supplies that aid in your recovery.

Medicare Part B subscribers will also get the access to a doctor while receiving treatment and have that covered as well. The emergency room services that were needed as a part of your unexpected stay will also be covered by your Medicare services.

A comforting and rebuilding stay in the hospital is what your Medicare coverage is supposed to help with when you are in the hospital. Going above this to access to entertainment and private rooms will likely not be covered by your Medicare benefits package.
