From my lovely friend Cheryl………be forewarned!-A.M.
This is going to be a trap for many people unaware of two words: “Under Observation”!
If the hospital uses these words for your admittance, you will be responsible for the hospital expenses; medicare will not cover them.
You should insist that the hospital admit you as “In-Patient”.
In review, do not let the hospital admit you with the words, “Under Observation.”
Insist on “In-Patient” designation.
It might be wise to inform family members too.
