Hospitals need to develop a detailed policy of when and how they'll provide post-acute financial assistance for uninsured or under-insured patients. The policy should allow staff to get real time decisions about what will be covered. Staff should apply the policy consistently to all patients in all situations. A policy frees up case managers to coordinate care for all their patients rather than spending hours at a time trying to line up post-acute care for unfunded patients.
