Medicare Cracks Down on Hospitals with High 30 Day Readmission Rates

A total of 2,610 hospitals in the U.S. will see their Medicare payments docked in fiscal 2015 for having excessive numbers of patients return to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. Some of the hospitals will lose 3% of their income in 2015 and only 750 hospitals had no penalties.
