Request an Application

After the patient is approved for placement at Broadway House by the Medicaid District Office:

  • Request a Broadway House application by sending an email to gracedi@uhnj.org

If the patient’s Medicaid eligibility is pending or has SSI income only, please contact the county welfare office to apply for institutional or traditional Medicaid.

Next, complete an application for the AIDS Drugs Distribution Program (ADDP). Completion of this form is essential because it provides HIV medication funding for those patients awaiting Medicaid eligibility.

Patients with private insurance must obtain and submit written approval from their insurance provider, agreeing to cover the costs of their care at Broadway House. Daily rates will be provided to the insurance company by the Broadway House Department of Admissions.

IMPORTANT: All applications must be completed and submitted to Broadway House for Continuing Care before patients can be admitted.

Notification

Healthcare providers referring patients to Broadway House are advised to consult with the patient and his or her family to ensure that they are aware of the referral and approve of the decision.

Medical Information may be obtained from the patient’s Visiting Nurse Service, Clinic, Hospital, or Private Physician.

Please note: Broadway House is not licensed as a psychiatric facility. Broadway House is a skilled nursing facility, which provides 24-hour sub-acute nursing care.

All information must be completed before a patient will be considered for admission. Broadway House usually has a waiting list. You will be informed of the acceptance or denial for admission. The accepted patient will be placed on the waiting list and you will be contacted when a bed becomes available.
