Rule for conditions acquired at hospital.

[No authors listed]


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a proposed rule that would stop payments for hospital-acquired conditions for Medicaid beneficiaries. State Medicaid agencies would be required to use the Medicare list of hospital-acquired conditions and would have the option to add additional conditions for non-payment. Hospitals must carefully and completely document all conditions on the list that are present on admission. Case managers should work with admitting physicians to ensure that the documentation is in the chart. Documentation for all patients must have the same scrutiny as for Medicare patients.
