The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced that it is extending the enforcement moratorium for part of the “two-midnights” rule until the new proposed rule takes effect on January 1, 2016. As you may recall, the “two midnights” rule states that hospital stays that are shorter than two nights would be classified as outpatient. The “two midnights” has been extremely controversial in the NTOCC community, the health care community at large and on Capitol Hill. It creates confusion for the patient and relies on an arbitrary length of time for a patient’s assessment as opposed to the expertise of the health care provider.

Recently, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) released a proposed rule reforming long term care facilities. As part of a larger reform rule, CMS proposed requirements surrounding documentation as patients transfer in and out of the long term post-acute system. The rule states “We propose to add a new requirement at §483.15(b)(2)(i) that the transferring facility provide necessary information to the resident’s receiving provider, whether it is an acute care hospital, a LTC hospital, a psychiatric facility, another LTC facility, a hospice, home health agency, or another community-based provider or practitioner.” It encourages providers to carefully handle transfers of care and refers them to the NTOCC website for more information and tools.

About NTOCC

The National Transitions of Care Coalition is a 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to addressing a serious U.S. health care issue: filling the gaps that occur when patients leave one care setting and move to another care setting. These transitions include patients moving from primary care to specialty physicians; moving or transferring patients from the emergency department to intensive care or surgery; and when patients are discharged from the hospital to home, assisted living arrangements, or skilled nursing facilities. The U.S. health care system often fails to meet the needs of patients during these transitions because care is rushed and responsibility is fragmented, with little communication across care settings and multiple providers.

Since 2006, NTOCC’s Advisors Council of over 30 organizations has shared a common goal of improving the quality of Transitions of Care. Working in conjunction with 450 Associate Member organizations and over 3,000 individual professional subscribers, NTOCC has developed tools and resources made available to everyone in the health care industry including providers, payers, patients and consumers. NTOCC’s mission is supported by the Partners Council made up of innovative companies leading critical change in health care coordination.
