    How Ensocare Choice Works

     

    The IMPACT Act

    In October 2014, the bipartisan "Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation" (IMPACT) Act became law. The law intends to change and improve Medicare's post-acute care (PAC) services and how they are reported. The first penalties for non-compliance (2 percent) began in October 2018.

    Key components of the IMPACT Act include the ability to ensure patient choice in post-acute care decisions.

    Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP)

    In late 2019, CMS finalized an additional rule involving the Medicare Conditions of Participation. To remain compliant, hospitals must meet these thresholds:

    • Quality and resource use data is applicable to the patient’s care goals and treatment preferences
    • Data is presented objectively
    • Data on available PAC providers meeting the patient criteria is presented
    • Patients are informed that they have a choice in their PAC selection
    • Patient is allowed to make their PAC selection
    • Interactions up to and including their final selection are documented in the medical record
