Rehospitalization

The Initiative to Reduce Avoidable Hospitalizations among Nursing Facility Residents is now into its second phase, the payment reform phase.  While only seven states (Alabama, Indiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, and Pennsylvania) participate in the Initiative, all facilities are subject to the SNF Value Based Purchasing Program in which rehospitalization is the sole measure.  Information on both the Initiative and the SNF VBP Program is located below.
