THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that both AMDA and AMA, as stated in policy since 1993 (AMDA HOD Resolutions L93 and C94), oppose the Medicare 3-day acute care hospitalization eligibility requirement for SNF admission.

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that if CMS does not eliminate the 3-day stay requirement, AMDA urge CMS to allow observation bed status and emergency room observation time to count toward meeting the 3-day inpatient stay requirement.
