TARCOG was recently selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in the Community-based Care Transition Program (CCTP), one of only 2 such programs in the state. The CCTP was created by the Affordable Care Act and will help community-based organizations such as TARCOG and hospitals form partnerships to prevent readmissions after beneficiaries leave the hospital. These new participating sites will work with CMS to provide support for beneficiaries as they move from the hospital to other care settings. The program is designed to not only keep patients healthier, but to reduce Medicare costs for avoidable hospital readmissions. Please click here for more information.
