Senior Care Resources

We know that leaving a Saber® affiliated facility can seem intimidating at first. But caring for your health doesn’t stop when you leave the care community. The patient resources listed here are available to you around-the-clock. The team works hard to make sure you have the senior care resources to continue your wellness journey.

Helpful Patient Resources

The Saber affiliated communities utilizes the resources of the Patient Education Institute® to provide the patients and their families with patient resources like the health education library. X-Plain’s multimedia library offers thousands of evidence-based health education topics in several languages. Each topic, from common ailments such as colds and flus to diabetes, cancers, heart conditions and more are presented in easy-to-understand multimedia formats, including written text, videos, tutorials, illustrated handouts and more. X-Plain can be accessed on smartphones, tablets, PCs and hospital bedside patient stations. Follow the Patient Education Institute® X-Plain link below to find information on everything from disorders and conditions to therapies and procedures. And don’t forget to explore the other senior care resources below for more helpful information.

What is HIPAA?

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is United States legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information.  This Act is balanced so that it provides needed information to health care providers for patient care, but also provides patients certain rights to that personal information.  Click here for additional information.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, and equipment.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

 

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, call 800-985-3059 or visit
