Private Pay is the primary funding source for most long term care products and services. This refers to costs that are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance and are therefore borne by the resident or his/her family. Individuals without long term care insurance and who do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid must pay for these services themselves.
Wingate is also a qualified provider of nursing facility care and services under many third party private insurance companies. If a resident is entitled to benefits under insurance offered by a non-Medicare/non-Medicaid insurance program, and if we participate as a provider under their program, Wingate will accept payment from the program. The resident will, however, be responsible for paying all co-payments, co-insurance, deductibles and charges for items and services that the program does not cover.
Please contact us with any questions concerning payment and billing policies. The Wingate staff is happy to assist you.
