Recently, new policy by name Medicare covers 80 percent of the medical services for the Alzheimer disease. Since no one can say that person, who was suffering from this problem prior is not suffering now, so Medicare is responsible for coverage.

What does Medicare Cover?

• Psychotherapy or behavioral management therapy by professionals
• Speech or physical and occupational therapy
• Reasonable and necessary doctor visits
• Skilled home-care facilities
• Medically assisted nursing homes and living facilities

What does Medicare not Cover?

Here are few of the below mentioned areas where Medicare does not cover for:
• Prescription or drugs for adult day care
• Rooms and boards
• Custodial care at nursing home

Medicaid

It is a state federal joint program for those people who are unable to afford the cost because of limited income or assets. They have several insurance plans and some benefits, which will cover the expenses. They even cover those, which Medicare does not reimburse.

Medigap

They provide insurance plans and other plans that supplement even Medicare benefits and some of Alzheimer’s treatment expenses. It all depends upon the choice of plan.

Private Health insurance

This is another reimbursement policy for Alzheimer’s treatment. You can visit the administration section in the hospital and find out more details.
