Under §1880 of the Act, Medicare Part A provides payment for hospitalization and post hospitalization extended care in SNFs, including swing-bed SNFs.

A beneficiary is entitled to 100 days of skilled nursing care in a SNF or the swing-bed unit of an acute care hospital or CAH during each benefit period. The first 20 days are covered in full, and the remaining days are subject to Medicare Part A SNF coinsurance, but is waived by the IHS.

For more information on swing-bed services see Chapter 8, in Pub. 100-02, Medicare Benefit Policy Manual.
