LIFETIME RESERVE DAYS

If you need to remain hospitalized for more than 90 days in a single benefit period, Original Medicare will cover your costs for a total of 60 additional reserve days over the course of your lifetime. For each of these 60 lifetime reserve days, Medicare pays all covered costs minus the daily coinsurance amount.
