From my lovely friend Cheryl………be forewarned!-A.M.

hospitalsignIf you are on Medicare, pay attention to this if you should have to be hospitalized….this is MAJOR NEWS.

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.
