Maplewood Nursing Home is contracted with both the New Hampshire Medicaid and federal Medicare programs. All 150 beds are dually licensed, meaning that Medicare and Medicaid residents can be accommodated anywhere within our facility.

Maplewood Nursing Home also accepts private pay residents, as well as third party insurance companies such as Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Maplewood’s daily room and board rates for both intermediate level nursing care (ICF) and the Therapeutic Living Center (behavioral unit) are bundled rates, meaning that these charges are all-inclusive, with the exception of pharmacy charges. The only charges for which residents may be responsible in addition to pharmacy, are miscellaneous personal care needs such as visits to the beautician or the canteen, or a one-time cable television hookup charge. Maplewood offers free standard cable television.

Physician and nurse practitioner visits and exams, and exams by other medical providers, such as a geropsychiatrist, are not included in Maplewood’s room and board daily rates.

The County Finance Office, located at 12 Court Street, Keene, NH, will bill Medicare Part A and Part B, as well as Medicaid and third party insurance companies on behalf of the residents at Maplewood Nursing Home. For any questions concerning financial policies, prospective residents or their representatives should contact the Finance Office (603-355-3029) or the office of Social Services at Maplewood Nursing Home (603-283-9409).
