Court Certifies Nationwide Class in “Observation Status” Case

The Center for Medicare Advocacy recently released a press statement on a federal court decision (Alexander v. Price) issued on July 31, 2017. The decision means that Medicare patients could gain the right to appeal placement on “Observation Status” and avoid potentially large out-of-pocket medical bills.  

In addition to being represented by attorneys from the Center for Medicare Advocacy, the class is also represented by attorneys from Justice in Aging and from the law firm of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. The court had previously allowed the case to proceed in a decision issued in February 2017.
