Dear Friends,

As you probably know, "Outpatient" Observation Status is a billing classification that can have devastating consequences – making Medicare patients foot the bill for their entire hospital stay, prescriptions, and nursing home care after leaving the hospital. Because many people never learn about this until it's too late, the Center for Medicare Advocacy has created a series of helpful graphics that explain:

  • What is Observation Status?
  • Why does Observation Status matter?
  • How to fight Observation Status

All the best,
