Indiana hospitals racking up millions of dollars in penalties

Indiana hospitals are racking up millions of dollars in penalties for having too many patients return for care within a month of discharge. Sixty-six Hoosier hospitals will see their Medicare payments docked next year by a total of about $12 million as a result of having patients readmitted within 30 days. That’s up from $9 million in penalties three years ago. IBJ article lists the top 20 penalized hospitals.
