Sign the Petition: Close the Observation Status Medicare Gap

from ACMA

Under Medicare law, patients must have an inpatient stay in a hospital spanning at least three days in order for Medicare to cover a subsequent rehab stay in a skilled nursing facility. Medicare would not cover follow-on rehabilitation services provided by a skilled nursing facility for those long-term "observation" patients, even though the care received by patients under "observation" is medically necessary. This "observation" status gap is unsustainable and unaffordable for seniors. Together, we can fill this gap! Help us push Congress to act. Sign the Petition. more
