Transitional care management services

How often is it covered?

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) may cover this service if you’re returning to your community after a stay at certain facilities, like a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). The health care provider who’s managing your transition back into the community will:

  • Coordinate and manage your care for the first 30 days after you return home
  • Work with you, your family and caregiver(s), as appropriate, and your other health care providers

You’ll also be able to get an in-person office visit within 2 weeks of your return home. The health care provider may also:

  • Review information on the care you got in the facility
  • Provide information to help you transition back to living at home
  • Work with other care providers
  • Help you with referrals or arrangements for follow-up care or community resources
  • Help you with scheduling
  • Help you manage your medications

Who's eligible?

All people with Part B are covered.
