I only wish you were right! The following is from the medicare website:

Sometimes people with Medicare need “self-administered drugs” while in
hospital outpatient settings. “Self-administered drugs” are medications that you
would normally take on your own, like medications that you take every day to
control blood pressure or diabetes. In most cases, Part B generally doesn’t pay for
self-administered drugs used in the hospital outpatient setting.
If you get self-administered drugs that aren’t covered by Medicare Part B while
in a hospital outpatient setting, the hospital may bill you for the drug. However,
if you’re enrolled in a Medicare drug plan (Part D), the plan may cover these

She was in as an outpatient. Perhaps that makes a difference also. It does say you can submit them to your Part D drug plan however who ever gets a bill from the hospital which lists each drug administered?
