Forbes Article on Three-Day Stay Rule

Dana Halvorson

Forbes Senior Contributor, Howard Gleckman, released an article entitled, “Are We Nearing The End Of Medicare’s Three-Day Rule That Makes Patients Pay For Skilled Nursing Care?” Gleckman focused on the August 4th tweet from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator, Seema Verma, in which she noted, “#Medicare beneficiary who requires skilled care in a nursing home?  Better be admitted for at least three days in the hospital first if you want the nursing home paid for.  Gov’t doesn’t always make sense.  We’re listening to feedback.” For more information about observation stays and the three-day stay requirement, please visit the AHCA/NCAL website.
