ECare2 Members,
Please Help us by signing our petition to "Protect Seniors from Hospital Classification Trickery at Check In". It is wrong that Seniors are being denied 21 days of medicare rehabilitation coverage because Hospitals are playing games with Medicare classifications.  Please help us get enough signatures to get President Obama and the Medicare Department's attention on this matter. We want Medicare to either drop the classification "Outpatient Under Observation" or require hospitals provide Seniors with written notice anytime the hospitals uses this erroneous classification for seniors confined to the hospital 3 or more days.  Thank you for your help

Members I am not sure what I need to do to get more visibility for this deserving cause.  I am open to recommendations to promote this cause.  (Ref. AARP Bulletin released an article on October 12, 2012 warning Mediare seniors that hospitals are NOT ADMITTING them but classifying them as "Outpatient Under Observation".  

Visibility: Everyone
