Income Tax. Final Exam. Yesterday. 9 am.
Per usual, got up around 6. Fed & walked the dog. Meditated a bit on all the tax-related thoughts swarming my brain (exam-specific ‘monkey mind’ if you will).
Packed a snack bag of bananas & peanut butter. Water bottle. And embarked on my half-mile journey to school, again per usual, on foot (helps me feel alive, think, and conserve gas not to mention parking money).
I want my clients who are eligible for Medicare (and their families) to understand that whenever they go to a hospital, it is important to know and to clarify their billing status. Hospitals are increasingly categorizing stays as for “observation” or “outpatient” even if the patient is in the hospital for several days. This is because hospitals have a large financial incentive to classify an individual as outpatient. (An outpatient stay is covered under Part B of Medicare. An inpatient stay is covered under Part A of Medicare.)
