In Response to RE: Medicare & Self-Administered Drugs by NEactuary3
Then you had better read all the mice type that they provide and you acknowledge - that goes for hospital and the Part D Medicare coverage.
You might be the "customer" but the hospital is following the rules of the actual payer - Medicare.
Keep fighting your battle and let us know how it comes out.
Here's another Medicare (CMS) info sheet for you - this one is dated May 2012.
Does Part B cover self-administered drugs given in anoutpatient setting, like an emergency department orhospital observation unit?
Generally, Part B doesn’t cover self-administered drugs a person gets in outpatient settings. A person’s Medicare drug plan (Part D) may cover these drugs under certain circumstances.
A person might need to pay out-of-pocket for these drugs and submit a claim to his or her Part D plan for a refund. He or she should call the plan for more information.
