“acute care services for both children and adults will be provided under agreements with a number of willing and qualified local acute care hospitals.”
“these agreements are important because general hospitals can be reimbursed for Medicaid-eligible psychiatric admissions and will very likely be less stigmatizing, and more likely to result in integrated healthcare and shorter lengths of stay (based on national statistics) than emergency admissions to Saint Elizabeths have been.”
Saint Elizabeths and all state and free standing hospitals are Institutes for Mental Diseases (IMDs) and are not eligible for Medicaid for patients between ages 22 and 64
