Group to study impact of changes to Medicare payments

Accreditation Connection, October 10, 2008

The Health Research & Education Trust has received $180,000 in grant funding to study the impact of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services decision to no longer reimburse for specific healthcare-associated infections. The study will specifically look at how this change in payment policies impacts safety-net hospitals.

Safety-net hospitals are facilities that serve large populations of uninsured or low-income patients. The grant was issued through the Commonwealth Fund.
