after you finish and answer the question try to add from my group team answer i will put it down below I want u to add a few sentence and her resource but first you need to answer the question and resource then add group answer to you question
this the group answer:
According to Medicare.gov, “ Medicare Part B covers medically necessary diagnostic and treatment services you get as an outpatient from a Medicare-participating hospital” ( Medicare.gov). Some of the services include but are not limited to emergency or observation services, which may include an overnight stay in the hospital, services in an outpatient clinic, including same-day surgery, laboratory tests billed by the hospital, and more. Anyone who is covered by Part B has access to these services. The American College of Physicians states, “ that from 2008 to 2009, Medicare payments per fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiary for hospital inpatient and outpatient services grew by 6 percent. In FY2009 Medicare spent $34 billion on FFS outpatient care at acute care hospitals” ( acponline.org, 2013). Alos According to MedPAC, ambulatory services that in 2013 it grew by 1.1% (Report to Congress: Medicare Payment Policy, 2015). I think that the result of the change will increase based on the service availability for the covered population because the more people pay out of their pocket the cost for health insurance premiums will increase and it’s cheaper to get services at an outpatient facility versus staying in an overpriced hospital.
