Reimbursement policy update: Inpatient Readmissions
Effective September 1, 2022, the Inpatient Readmissions policy will utilize clinical coding criteria and/or licensed clinical medical review to determine if the subsequent admission is appropriate.
Additionally, when a member is readmitted within 14 days as part of a planned readmission and/or placed on a leave of absence, the admissions are considered to be one admission, and only one DRG will be reimbursed.
