Medicare Beneficiaries Urged To Know Appeal Rights
About a decade ago, Medicare issued new regulations giving seniors and their families a process to appeal pending hospital discharges and to make complaints about the quality of care.
It created an entity called the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization. Livanta is the QIO for Medicare beneficiaries in the Northeast.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Jennifer Bitterman, the director of communications for Livanta.
