    Default 3 day rule

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone heard about the 3 day hospital rule where you cannot build another hospital admit within three days of the intial hospital stay? I can't seem to find this information on the cms website. Any information would help thanks.

    Default 3 day rule

    Here's a place to start. Still looking:


    If you go to the CMS website, type in 3 day rule in the search area, there is a lot of information that comes up. See what you think.
