317:55-5-24. Hospital readmission damages
The OHCA will establish a hospital readmission damage program to reduce potentially preventable readmissions. The program will use a nationally recognized tool to establish a base measurement year and a performance year and will provide for risk-adjustment based on the population of the state Medicaid program covered by the MCOs or DBMs. The program will be fully described in the managed care contract so that the program will be founded on contract-current tools, populations, and other factors.
