Skilled Nursing Facility Three-Day Waiver Program

The skilled nursing facility three-day waiver program is an exciting opportunity at Partners HealthCare to test a new way of improving care and reducing costs. The waiver allows Pioneer accountable care organization beneficiaries to receive coverage for SNF services without a prior three-day inpatient hospitalization. The waiver allows ACO beneficiaries access to the appropriate level of care, avoiding unnecessary and preventable days in the hospital.
