We are here to provide guidance.


At NHC HealthCare, Laurens, we understand that there are many factors - physical, financial and emotional - that may need to be considered when making life-changing care and medical decisions for you, a loved one or a patient.

If you or someone you know is in need of inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing services or is interested in our respite or long-term care options, our Social Services team can answer any questions you may have. We will be happy to provide you with information on the admissions requirements as they relate to each of the different levels of care that we offer and will work with you to determine the most appropriate level of care for you or your family member. We will provide you with information regarding room availability and placement options.

We encourage you to visit us to discuss how we may assist you so that you can experience the NHC difference - our commitment to quality, consistent care.

What is Medicare?

  2. Medical Insurance - Part B helps pay for doctor's services and other medical services and supplies not covered by Medicare Hospital Insurance Part A.
  3. Medicare Advantage - Part C (Medicare's managed care option)
  4. Prescription Drug Coverage - Part D helps pay for prescription drugs not covered by Medicare Hospital Insurance Part A.

What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a state and federal government program that pays for certain health services and nursing home care for older, or disabled, people with low incomes and limited assets. In most states, Medicaid also pays for some long-term care services at home and in the community. Who is eligible and what services are covered vary from state to state. Most often, eligibility is based on your income and personal resources.
