Public Comment Period Open for Fiscal Year 2022 Hospital Readmission Reduction Care Transition Operating Standards for Service Programs

Behavioral and Physical Health and Aging Services Administration, Bureau of Aging, Community Living, and Supports (ACLS Bureau), is requesting the addition of a new service standard to the Operating Standards for Service Programs. The Operating Standards represent a compilation of the policies, standards, rules, regulations, and statutes most directly relating to service programs. The ACLS Bureau is proposing to create a new Care Transition Service Program standard to provide coaching, guidance, and resources as adults 60 and over discharge from medical care facilities to support a full recovery and opportunity to live well and thrive as they age in their communities.

Public comment is open from May 19, 2022, to June 17, 2022. Please submit comments via email to Annette Gamez.

Here is the draft Service Standard.
