Medicaid Question

  1. 0
    Okay searching for hours and I find lots of references to Medicare but I cannot find the answer related to Medicaid.
    If a patient is under the acute care (60 days) under Medicaid in Home care and is discharged before that time is up than readmitted within 30 days, what are the repercussions on the home care agency?

    good question, i don't believe that medicaid is under the same payment system, i do know that each medicaid patient is alloted X# of visits per calendar year and once they use them up they have no more HH benefit.

    Medicaid is a state program. Every state administers their own benefits and makes their own rules.
