by on August 3, 2015, No Comments

Last week the U.S. House of Representatives passed the NOTICE (Notice of Observation Treatment and Implication for Care Eligibility) Act which requires hospitals to provide notice to Medicare beneficiaries receiving outpatient care for more than 24 hours of their status as an outpatient, the reasons why and the implications of receiving outpatient care. The notice must be given within 36 hours of the outpatient services or by the time of patient discharge, whichever comes first.

With the full Senate passage on the act, the NOTICE legislation will be sent to the President to be signed into law.
