Under the new waiver, Maryland must reduce Medicare beneficiary readmissions to a rate at least as low as the nation’s within five years. This session will review in detail two readmissions payment policies that apply to Maryland’s hospitals: Medicare’s shared savings revenue adjustment and HSCRC’s readmissions payment policy. An ensuing discussion will focus on how these policies relate to Maryland’s readmissions target, and potential changes to these policies in the coming years. We will also discuss the data that is available to measure and track readmissions under these policies, and ask for feedback on how your organization uses data to manage readmissions.
