By Sara Zeff Geber

By Carol Levine

Hundreds of thousands of Medi­care beneficiaries who received “observation services as an out­patient” after January 1, 2009, may be eligible to participate in a class-action lawsuit to appeal those financially costly decisions.

Shea, of the U.S. District Court of Connecticut, ruled in their favor over the objections of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
