Post Acute Care Reform Plan

Over the past year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) developed a plan to improve Medicare's payment for post-acute care services and the coordination of these services. The plan reviewed current industry practices and established overarching principles and a vision for post-acute care reform. Post-acute care is care that is provided to individuals who need additional help recuperating from an acute illness or serious medical procedure.
