What is the Swing Bed Program


Medicare has established the “Swing Bed” program to help meet the needs of smaller communities and hospitals. Following a hospital stay related to surgery, illness or injury, some patients may require further care to reach an optimal level of strength and wellness, which will allow them to safely return to their home or residential facility.


Your length of stay will be determined upon your individual needs and progress. Medicare will cover up to 20 days at 100% providing the patient meets the criteria and continues to show improvement.


Patients are discharged from Swing Bed when: a physician has determined they have achieved the maximum benefit of skilled nursing or rehabilitation, the patient’s care has become custodial, the care requires long term rehabilitation placement or there is a change in the patient’s need or level of care.



The following requirements must be met by a patient to qualify for the Swing Bed program: Be covered by Medicare Part A,Have had 3 overnights in an acute care bed prior to Swing Bed services. Have an ongoing diagnosis and needs that meet the required skilled care as defined by Medicare.Skilled care as defined by Medicare.





Swing Bed Care is a Medicare benefit, Worker’s Compensation (determined on a case by case basis) and most Private/Commercial Insurance Companies with prior authorization.
