Representative Blumenauer, Petri Introduce the Medicare Transitional Care Act

Posted on 5/30/2014 by NTOCC ® in Public Policy Updates

Today, Representatives Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Thomas Petri (R-WI), introduced the bipartisan Medicare Transitional Care Act of 2014, legislation that seeks to improve transitions of care by providing Medicare beneficiaries that are at highest risk for hospital readmission access to evidence based transitional care services that are provided by an eligible transitional care entity, such as a hospital, community-based organization or skilled nursing facility. Importantly, as you may recall, NTOCC has worked to ensure that the bill aligns with NTOCC’s “Seven Essential Elements” and supports team-based care.

Below is Congressman Blumenauer’s press release which features a quote from Cheri Lattimer, NTOCC’s Executive Director.
