Subacute Care Facilities
Subacute care providers are grouped into two statewide peer groups, one being hospital-based providers, and the other being freestanding nursing facility providers. These peer groups are further broken down into ventilator and non-ventilator-patient reimbursement categories.
Providers comprising both peer groups are reimbursed their projected costs up to the median, regardless of whether reimbursement is for ventilator or non-ventilator patients.
Pediatric Subacute Care
Reimbursement for pediatric subacute care services is based on a model, since historical cost data are currently not available. Peer groups are based on whether the subacute unit is part of a hospital-based nursing facility or a freestanding nursing facility. Rates also differ according to whether the patient is ventilator dependent or not.
