When is a Hospital Admission Not a Hospital Admission?

Most people wouldn’t think to ask if a hospital admission is actually an admission – and it turns out that for some patients, especially the elderly and those receiving Medicare benefits, it can be a multi-thousand dollar question. Check out this link to KevinMD’s article, “How Observation Admissions affect Medicare Patients” to learn about a troubling situation that is ocurring more and more frequently as hospitals mark patients as ‘observation only’ admissions – often leaving the patient with an additional 20% co-pay and a bill for the the full price of any services rendered after discharge.
