2019 Post Acute Care Spending Trends

What is Post Acute Care?

Have you or a family member ever required short-term rehabilitation and care in a hospital, or for a short period of time after a hospitalization? 

Typically, immediate health issues can be taken care of within a hospital, but it’s not uncommon for patients to need a longer, more extended stay in a setting that makes rehabilitation accessible. 

Spending in the Post Acute Industry

Post-acute care spending and trends are changing, meaning payments are about to look a lot different. 

Despite a previous decade of low spending growth per person, numbers in Medicare, according to a 2018 article by The Commonwealth Fund, we are beginning to see an increase in spending even in the post-acute care industry. 

The Role of Insurance in Post-Acute Care and Nursing Homes

According to a market research study performed by Adroit Market Research, the U.S. post-acute care market is expected to grow to $481.08 billion by 2025 with a growing CAGR rate of 4.3% taking place during the study period. 

A massive portion of Americans approaching 65 years or older in the coming years will be Medicare eligible, meaning options like post-acute care are readily available. 

Why Post-Acute Care Matters

The post-acute rehab industry relies heavily on the close-knit relationships formed between patients and their nurses, and hospice staff needed as they age. 

The therapists work in conjunction with our team of physicians, nurses, social workers, and nutritionists, along with the patient and their family to develop an individualized plan of care. 

Why Post-Acute Care is Worth It

It can be discouraging when the reality of a quick recovery isn’t possible, but post-acute care is designed to alleviate the stress and strife that comes with aging and spending. 

At South Coast Post Acute, we provide rehabilitation therapy and care for our patients until they are completely ready to return to their homes and function in their daily lives.
