In today’s CMS phone call and webinar, CMS officials offered tips and pitfalls that applicants for CCTP funding should keep in mind. You can find those by scrolling through the slides from today’s webinar. And Medicaring will post more information early next week, detailing what we heard in the call–and what we learned.
Note one correction to the slides: Do NOT use the $9600 average cost of readmission as the baseline for calculating your blended rate. It is only to be used to project savings.
