Long-term Acute Care
Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) is for those patients needing prolonged medically complex care immediately following a complicated acute hospital admission often involving an extended stay, intensive care or both.
It is exactly what some patients need to complete their treatment and recover from their acute illness. However, frequently this service is aggressively managed by insurers with efforts to redirect patients to a lower level of care. Often, this process presents a problem for those patients that need this important setting for their care, and it creates a challenge for LTAC hospitals to keep their beds full.
Cadenza Health has a team of physicians with extensive acute care experience including work in LTAC facilities. We understand which patients are appropriate for transfer to an LTAC and which are not. Familiarity with these acutely ill patients from years of rounds, as well as our experience assisting payers with LTAC admission requests, makes us uniquely qualified to assist you with getting these admissions approved or dealing with the cumbersome appeals process.
A partnership with Cadenza Health will help ensure reimbursement for the care your patients need.
