The three-day rule of Medicare beneficiaries requires the patients to stay in one or more hospitals as an inpatient resident. However, the discharge day is not counted while the facility will be counting the admission day. The time spent in the outpatient even prior to the admission will not be counted in the 3-day rule.
part B of Medicare covers services that are not limited to x rays, outpatient hospital services, rehabilitation services, ambulance services, the purchase of any item. Original Medicare covers up to 90days in a hospital and also offers an additional sixty days which will have a high coinsurance.
It is also available in your reserves only once during your lifetime and can be applied towards different stays.
