Q:    If a beneficiary changes from one Medicare Advantage plan to another, do they automatically get 100 new days of Skilled Nursing? MAO's do not report days paid to the Common Working file and unless the SNF informs the new plan of days paid under another plan or that the beneficiary has had previous stays we may not know if they have used days. How should this be handled?
