Effective July 2002, IHS hospital swing-bed services began being paid according to the SNF prospective payment system (PPS) payment methodology. See Chapter 6, §30.6 in Pub. 100-04, Medicare Claims Processing Manual for information on SNF PPS payment methodology.

Medicare Part A coinsurance is applied to IHS swing-bed inpatient bills, but is waived by the IHS.
