Medicare 3-Day Waiver - Genesis Health System

Medicare 3-Day Waiver

The Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), 3-Day Rule Waiver, waives the requirement for a 3-day inpatient hospital stay prior to a Medicare-covered, post-hospital, extended-care service for eligible beneficiaries. This means that you can avoid a hospital stay prior to being admitted to an eligible SNF.

As a beneficiary, and as applicable, your provider will complete a communication plan and gather signatures on the SNF 3-day waiver.

The SNF must be rated by CMS as 4 stars or higher.
