The High Cost of Hospital Readmissions


A hospital “readmission” is the return of a patient to a hospital within 30 days of being discharged from a hospital. Readmissions cost U.S. taxpayers and insurance companies billions of dollars each year. To combat this high cost, hospitals and other health systems are penalized for readmissions.
