Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1) Will insurance cover my stay?

    Coverage for resident stays will vary by individual insurance policies. Our staff will work with you and your provider in order to verify insurance coverage. Please note that pre-authorizations are not a guarantee of payment and only your insurance carrier is able to make such determinations.

    Our staff provides laundry services, but if you and/or the resident prefers, you may take your loved one's laundry home and return it once laundered. For our residents in the Pecos Valley Rehabilitation Suites, there is a washer and dryer available for your convenience.
