Modern Healthcare

Most U.S. hospitals will get less money from Medicare in fiscal 2016 because too many patients return within 30-days of discharge.

Only 799 out of more than 3,400 hospitals subject to the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program performed well enough on the CMS‘ 30-day readmission program to face no penalty. Thirty-eight hospitals will be subject to the maximum 3% reduction, according to a Modern Healthcare analysis of newly posted CMS data.
