MOON Advisory: Medicare Updates Observation Status Rules

From HealthLeaders Media:

An updated version of the Medicare Outpatient Observation Notice (MOON), which alerts Medicare beneficiaries about the potential coverage consequences of inpatient vs. outpatient status at hospitals, was released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services this week.

By March 8, 2017, hospitals will be required to present the MOON advisory in writing and verbally to Medicare beneficiaries who receive at least 24 hours of hospital services under outpatient status.
