Q&A: Outpatient in a Bed
Q. Is the MOON notice required for patients in outpatient and a bed status, such as extended recovery?
A. No. This is only for patients receiving observation services. It would seem to me that it would be the same, but remember the politics of this issue are primarily circulating around observation services.
