Welcome LTAC Hospitals

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

This home page will serve as "information headquarters" for the LTAC Hospital Program. Look here for updates and news on the LTAC Hospital Program and requirements.

IMPORTANT: To utilize the rest of this Web portal, you must first register for a User Name and Password. Please click on Register at the top right corner of this home page.
