Does Medicare cover long term care such as assisted living and nursing home? The answer is no. When reading through your Medicare policy, you might get confused by the terms, “skilled nursing care” or “100 days of coverage.” These terms may sound like nursing home coverage but they are actually rehabilitative coverages that covers acute situations such as a heart attack, stroke, or an accident of some sort.
