Funding Sources


Our 72-bed Sub-Acute Unit is conveniently located on the same campus as St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital’s acute care hospital and emergency services.

Funding Sources for Patient Stays in Sub-Acute Unit

St. John’s Sub-Acute Unit is funded by a variety of commercial, public, and private funding sources, including but not limited to: 

  • Workmens’ Compensation
  • Medi-Cal (with or without a share of cost)
  • Medi-Cal HMO (such as Gold Coast or Cen Cal)
  • Private health plans (i.e. BC / Anthem or BS, depending on the benefit available for sub-acute care)
  • Medicare
Please Note: For patients with Medicare or private health plans, Medi-Cal is required to provide payment beyond Medicare’s 100-day benefit and/or to provide payment beyond the private health plan’s coverage. It is important to, at minimum, have the Medi-Cal application in place at the time of the patient evaluation for Sub-Acute Unit.
