    VERY common. Sat and Sun. Some agencies have a 24 or 48 hour policy of Admit after the referral has been received.

    YES! My agency does SOCs on weekends and emergency visits only.

    Yup, most SOCs happen Fri, Sat, and Sun. Medicare gives the agency 48 hours from the time of the referral to do the SOC, so if it comes in on Friday, SOC is happening by Sunday unless you get a physician-ordered SOC date.
