Category: Inadequate Notice
- Facility informed the appellant of its intent to discharge her for nonpayment. The issue is whether the facility is justified in seeking to discharge the appellant, and whether it followed proper procedures in doing so. Appeal is approved. Decision is to rescind notice and provide reasonable and appropriate notice to the appellant and her representative to pay for (or have Medicaid or Medicare) her stay at the facility.
