Livanta National Medicare Claim Review Contractor

Short Stay Review

Formerly known as the “Two-Midnight Rule Review,” claim reviews for short hospital stays focus on the claims submitted by providers when a patient was admitted to the hospital as an inpatient but discharged less than two days later. Inpatient admissions are generally payable under Part A if the admitting practitioner expects the patient to require a hospital stay that crosses two midnights and the medical record supports that reasonable expectation.

Through the CMS claim review activity, reviewers at Livanta obtain and evaluate the medical record to ensure that the patient's admission and discharge were medically appropriate based on the documentation of the patient's condition and treatment rendered during the stay, and that the corresponding Part A Medicare claim submitted by the provider was appropriate.
