Your Medicare Rights
- A Medicare patient has the right to appeal a discharge if he or she does not agree
with the discontinuation of skilled services. The patient must be given a letter
with the planned discharge date explaining how to appeal the discharge. A Medicare
patient can appeal even if they are in an HMO.
After the letter is given, call FMQAI at 866-800-8768.
Our FMQAI physician will look at the medical record to see if the services should
continue. The Medicare patient will be informed of the decision. For additional
information, call 1-800-MEDICARE (633-4227)
