That is called double billing, and it is Medicare fraud. It is against the law for any medical provider to bill for something with the wrong date of service, and especially to bill the same charge twice when it was only performed once. There is a VERY LARGE penalty for Medicare fraud. A call needs to be made to the local Medicare or Social Security office.

How much money does someone need before medicare will pay nursing home costs?

Whether Medicare will pay for nursing home care is not a matter of how much money the patient needs. In general, Medicare does not pay for long term, "custodial" care, which is the reason for most nursing home admissions. Medicare will pay for nursing home care for rehabilitation; in such a case, the medical record must show that the patient is progressing.

Should hospital advise you a service may not be covered Is there a form for a patient to sign accepting or rejecting a non covered item?

yes: this is called an ABN, or advance beneficiary notice. If you receive this notice, the hospital is telling you that they don't believe you will meet Medicare criteria for a procedure. If you sign it, they will still submit the bill to Medicare, but you will be responsible for paying it if Medicare refuses. The best thing to do may be to ask for them to get a predetermination from Medicare: then you will know before hand whether it will be covered or not. Also, it is important to note that this is NOT a valid form for Medicare Advantage Plans. They are not legally binding at all if you have an advantage plan, and if they try to bill you because you signed it, your insurance company will inform them they cannot do that (if they are contracted with your insurance company).
