PPACA Section 3025: The Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program

AGG Partner Keith A. Mauriello and Of Counsel Neil W. Hoffman, Ph.D., published an article entitled “PPACA Section 3025: The Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program” in the May 2012 edition of the American Health Lawyers Association newsletter, Hospitals & Health Systems Rx. The article provides an overview of the program, which is designed to ensure appropriate care to individuals discharged and to avoid hospital readmissions by subjecting hospitals with a high rate of potentially preventable Medicare readmissions to Medicare payment reductions.
