Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Rep. Todd Young Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Protect Medicare Beneficiaries07/28/14
Today, Congressman Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) and Congressman Todd Young (R-IN) introduced the Notice of Observation Treatment and Implication for Care Eligibility (NOTICE) Act of 2014. The NOTICE Act is a bipartisan bill that requires hospitals to provide meaningful written and oral notification to patients who are in the hospital "under observation" for more than 24 hours. Providing this notice can make a difference in out-of-pocket costs to a Medicare patient of $10,000, $100,000 or even more.
Rep. Todd Young announced today that he will meet with constituents on an individual and small-group basis at the 9th District Constituent Service Center in Jeffersonville on Tuesday, August 5 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
