Title As CMS makes another policy change, policy makers distinguish between different forms of care Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication ED Management : the Monthly Update on Emergency Department Management Abbreviated Journal ED Manag
Volume 25 Issue 10 Pages 109-114
Keywords *Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (U.S.); Emergency Service, Hospital; *Government Regulation; Length of Stay; Patient Care/*methods; United States; *Watchful Waiting
Abstract As observation care continues to draw fire from critics who charge that the designation ends up costing hospitals money while also sticking patients with exorbitant fees, the medical directors of dedicated observation units counter that the kind of care delivered by their specialized units actually saves money and gets patients out of the hospital sooner. They note that the problem is that only about one-third of hospitals actually have dedicated observation units, so patients placed on observation typically wind up in inpatient beds, where they may only be evaluated once a day. CMS has just released a new policy rule on observation that should help patients avoid excessive charges, but many experts would like to see the agency take steps to incentivize the kind of quality care that is delivered in dedicated units. The new CMS rule for 2014 caps observation stays at 48 hours. Patients who remain in the hospital beyond this point become inpatients, as long as they meet inpatient criteria. Proponents of observation care contend that the average length-of-stay in a dedicated observation unit is just 15 hours--typically much shorter than the LOS of patients who are placed on observation in inpatient beds. Care in a dedicated observation unit is generally driven by protocol in an emergency medicine environment where there is continuous rounding. Discharges can occur at any time of the day or night. Experts note that observation patients account for the largest portion of both misdiagnoses and malpractice lawsuits stemming from emergency settings.

Title Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Exchange functions: standards for Navigators and non-Navigator assistance personnel; consumer assistance tools and programs of an Exchange and certified application counselors. Final rule Type Journal Article
Year 2013 Publication Federal Register Abbreviated Journal Fed Regist
Volume 78 Issue 137 Pages 42823-42862
Keywords Certification/legislation & jurisprudence/standards; Community-Institutional Relations/*legislation & jurisprudence/standards; Consumer Participation/*legislation & jurisprudence; Counseling/*legislation & jurisprudence/standards; Health Care Reform/legislation & jurisprudence/standards; Health Insurance Exchanges/*legislation & jurisprudence/standards; Humans; Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act/*legislation & jurisprudence; United States
Abstract This final rule addresses various requirements applicable to Navigators and non-Navigator assistance personnel in Federally-facilitated Exchanges, including State Partnership Exchanges, and to non-Navigator assistance personnel in State Exchanges that are funded through federal Exchange Establishment grants. It finalizes the requirement that Exchanges must have a certified application counselor program. It creates conflict-of-interest, training and certification, and meaningful access standards; clarifies that any licensing, certification, or other standards prescribed by a state or Exchange must not prevent application of the provisions of title I of the Affordable Care Act; adds entities with relationships to issuers of stop loss insurance to the list of entities that are ineligible to become Navigators; and clarifies that the same ineligibility criteria that apply to Navigators apply to certain non-Navigator assistance personnel. The final rule also directs that each Exchange designate organizations which will then certify their staff members and volunteers to be application counselors that assist consumers and facilitate enrollment in qualified health plans and insurance affordability programs, and provides standards for that designation.
