Webcast on new HCA readmissions policy

November 15, 2017

WSHA and the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) will host a webcast from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, November 28 on the HCA’s new Medicaid readmissions payment policy. The new policy takes effect January 1, replacing the current policy that penalizes hospitals with higher-than-average readmissions rates. The new policy places much more emphasis on the hospital’s role in discharging patients to decrease potentially preventable readmissions. Register for the webcast here. (Chelene Whiteaker)
