How long will I get care at Bridgeway?
If Medicare is your primary payer, you are given up to 100 days, so long as your medical condition meets the Medicare-defined guidelines. You must keep showing improvement for Medicare to continue to cover within that 100-day benefit period. If you have health insurance, they will cover as long as you are showing improvement and your stay is medically necessary.
Most people who come to Bridgeway are discharged home within three to five weeks. Your own recovery will depend upon a number of factors including your overall health and well-being before your recent hospital stay, and the type of condition and surgery you were treated for at the hospital.
