Your Medicare Rights during a Hospital Discharge
Question: What can I do if I’m being discharged from the hospital and I don’t feel well enough to return home?  I feel I still have some health issues and want to stay in the hospital for a few more days.
Answer:  Medicare patients can appeal a hospital discharge, which is different from other Medicare appeals, because a hospital discharge appeal follows a faster timeline.
How do I Appeal?  Refer to the “Important Message from Medicare” notice, which the hospital should provide at least once during your inpatient hospital stay, and outlines how to request an appeal by an independent group.~
While the appeal is underway, the hospital must provide a “Detailed Notice of Discharge” that explains why it thinks you are ready to leave.  You will be contacted by the independent reviewers for your opinion and they will also review your medical records.
The reviewers should have a decision within 24 hours of receiving all the necessary information. If the appeal is successful, your care will continue to be covered.
If you’re appeal is unsuccessful, you will not be held responsible for the cost of care during the 24-hour period while you waited for a decision. If you remain in the hospital after that period, you may be responsible for the cost of care.
