WSHA hosted a webinar February 22 providing an overview of the NOTICE Act requirements and the Medicare Outpatient Observation Notification (MOON) form. The act requires hospitals, including critical access hospitals, to notify Medicare patients who have been placed in observation status. Click here for links to the form, form completion instructions, FAQs and Medicare manual guidance.
During the webcast, hospitals shared what they are doing operationally to meet the requirements. WSHA has provided webinar slides, which detail the requirements and include a summary of the comments shared by hospitals during the webinar. (Andrew Busz)
