AHCA/NCAL continues its support and advocacy for legislation, The Improving Access to Medicare Coverage Act of 2013 (S. 569/H.R. 1179), introduced by Reps. Joe Courtney (D-CT) and Tom Latham (R-IA), along with Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), which seeks to count all hospital days spent in observation towards the three-day stay requirement.

Currently, S. 569 has 25 bipartisan cosponsors, while H.R. 1179 currently has 141 bipartisan cosponsors.

AHCA/NCAL has an updated fact sheet on the issue. For more information about observation stays and related legislation, please visit the AHCA/NCAL website.
