Some Rights You May Not Know About
For those of you on Medicare, you may be unaware that you have the right to appeal if you or a loved one is being discharged prematurely. In fact, when you are going to be discharged, you will receive a notice entitled “An Important Letter from Medicare”. This will have information about how to appeal the decision to discharge. You are also entitled to remain hospitalized until the decision is made and to have your decision expedited.
