Welcome to the Long Term Acute Care Hospital Quality Improvement Transfer Act Program that has been developed in response to Illinois Public Act 96-1130. The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) has contracted with eQHealth Solutions to:
- Determine whether your facility meets the statutory requirements of the Act
- Educate and train your team on the program requirements
- Conduct mandatory concurrent review for all LTAC admissions for patients covered under HFS' medical program. (This applies to all LTAC Hospitals regardless if applying for qualified provider status)
- Perform compliance monitoring reviews at designated intervals which will be utilized by HFS to determine your facilities continued participation and reimbursement under the enhanced payment provision provided in the Act
