Medicare uses the benefit period as a tool to measure the use of Part A benefits. A benefit period is a period of consecutive days during which covered inpatient services may be available to a beneficiary. Within each benefit period, Medicare allows coverage for a certain number of inpatient days depending on the type of facility. This presentation covers:

• Maximum Payable Days in Each Benefit Period and Beneficiary Responsibility
• Full and Coinsurance Days
• Lifetime Reserve (LTR) Days
• Brief Overview of Inpatient Psychiatric Hospital Days
• Tools for Verifying Available Days
• Understanding “DOEBA” and “DOLBA” when Verifying Days
• Starting and Ending a Benefit Period
