Readmissions Shared Savings Policy (RSSP)

Overview

The Commission approved a shared savings policy on May 1, 2013, which reduced hospital revenues based on risk-adjusted readmission rates using specifications set forth in the Admission-Readmission Revenue Constraint Program (ARR). The program was developed to maintain Maryland’s exemption from the CMS readmission program and requires a specific percent reduction of inpatient revenue in the state during each fiscal year.
