Off Campus Medicare Outpatient Coinsurance Notice

Medicare regulations require a notice be given to Medicare patients of potential financial liability for services provided in any off campus hospital-based entity. The patient must sign the notice acknowledging an estimated cost for off campus services, which the patient would not incur if the services were furnished in an entity that is not hospital-based. This applies to services rendered to Medicare patients in any of our UM Hospitals’ satellites (i.e., Kendall, Plantation, etc.)
