Even if you're not on Medicare, forward this to your friends who are........

FYI. This could result in a very costly mistake for Medicare patients. 
Pay attention to this if you or an older relative should have to be hospitalized......

This was on NBC News during the night in the middle of January of 2014 and thought I should send it to all my friends on Medicare as fair warning. I've included the segment for you to view. Basically, if I understand it correctly, do not let the hospital admit you with the words, "Under Observation." Insist on "In-Patient" designation. Otherwise, you will be responsible for the hospital expenses. It might be wise to inform family members too.

Here is the link to the story

Long time no see. I hope everything is going well. I was looking at an old post from 2007 and saw a comment from you, I was glad the link was still good. Anyway, it's nice to see you helping people with important information. That could make the difference between going broke or not especially now days.
Nice to you're still around!
