If you’re receiving care in a hospital or non-hospital setting, you may be told that your Medicare will no longer pay for your care and that you will be discharged. You have the right to file a fast appeal if you feel that continued care is medically necessary. There are separate processes for hospital and non-hospital appeals. Non-hospital care includes care from a skilled nursing facility, Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility, hospice, or home health agency. Be aware that at each level of appeal there is a separate timeframe for when you must file the appeal and when you’ll receive a decision. Make sure to file each appeal in a timely manner or your appeal may not be considered.
