Health insurance has never been inexpensive in the United States. A special program — Medicare — has been developed and presented to the public so that all US citizens could feel safe and protected and understand that they will get the necessary help once they need professional medical assistance. However, due to various reasons, an individual might decide to terminate their premium hospital treatment coverage. Form CMS-1763 must be completed in this case to prove to the medical personnel that the patient has made this decision willfully and voluntarily and is fully aware of all the consequences. According to statistics, about 14,000 citizens initiate this form completion.
A person who has expressed a wish to stop their Medicare coverage will be accountable for paying for their hospital insurance. The form cannot be completed by CMS staff.
