What is this “30 Day Re-Admission Rule”?
Well, under the “Affordable Care Act” of 2010 the 30 Day Re-Admission Rule was written into law. This rule, designed to eliminate quality of care mistakes and prevent premature discharges leading to re-admissions states: Patients re-admitted into a hospital/medical institution within 30 days of discharge; the discharging hospital/medical institution will be fined in the form of a reduction in reimbursement from the State for the patient’s hospitalization. This “Rule” has an adverse effect on and for Sickle Cell Patients.
