Who Pays for Swing Bed?

The Swing bed program is a hospital based program and Medicare is the primary payer of the services that meet the required criteria. However, many commercial insurance companies also provide swing bed coverage. Private pay is also an option. A patient must have had a three night qualifying stay in an acute care setting in the past 30 days. You could be in the program for as little as 3 days, or up to 100 days. Medicare pays 100% of the total charges for the first 20 days and pays for up to 100 days with varying co-pay charges.
