Morgan describes how a federal trial in Connecticut on observation status was recently concluded. According to the Center for Medicare Advocacy, since 2011, the organization “has been pursuing a nationwide class action lawsuit seeking an appeal for Medicare beneficiaries who are classified as hospital outpatients in observation status.” Reportedly, “The Alexander trial was held before US District Court Judge Michael Shea from August 12 – 20, 2019. The Judge ordered post-trial briefing, which is expected to take approximately 75 days. Then the parties will await Judge Shea’s decision.”
