HI 00601.110 Inpatient Psychiatric Hospital Services—Lifetime Limitation
Payment may not be made for more than a total of 190 days of inpatient psychiatric
hospital services during the patient's lifetime. The limitation applies only to services furnished in a psychiatric hospital. The period spent in a psychiatric hospital prior to entitlement does not count against
the patient's lifetime limitation, even though preentitlement days may have been counted
against the 150 days of eligibility in the first benefit period.
