Hospital readmission policy updated

08/28/2018

Our updated hospital readmission policy, effective Oct. 1, 2018, defines the payment guidelines for readmissions to acute general short-term hospitals within 30 calendar days for the same, similar or related diagnosis. The policy applies to in-network facilities for readmissions that have occurred within the 30-calendar-day period of a previous discharge within the same hospital or hospital system.
