We believe in helping UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage members receive the resources they need to successfully recover at home or in a skilled nursing facility. To help our care providers and our members make more informed choices during the discharge planning process, we’re compiling a list of high-performing home health care providers and skilled nursing facilities that may demonstrate improved patient outcomes based on quality and cost efficiency criteria.
Using a two-stage process, we assessed both quality and cost-efficiency data from Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS), Medicare.gov and UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage. The results of these quality and cost efficiency assessments were used together to identify high-performing home health care providers and skilled nursing facilities in the states below.
We’ll provide updates as this information becomes available in more states.
