Subacute Care Facilities

Adult Subacute Care


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.


Adult Freestanding Subacute Care rates are set by the Long Term Care System Development Unit
