WITHOUT

Telehealth Modifier (including but not limited to): GQ, GT, 95, POS 02

Numerator

Inpatient readmission to the same hospital for any reason or an outside hospital (if known to the surgeon), within 30 days of the principal surgical procedure

Numerator Instructions:

INVERSE MEASURE – A lower calculated performance rate for this measure indicates better clinical care or control. The “Performance Not Met” numerator option for this measure is the representation of the better clinical quality or control. Submitting that numerator option will produce a performance rate that trends closer to 0%, as quality increases. For inverse measures, a rate of 100% means all of the denominator eligible patients did not receive the appropriate care or were not in proper control.

Numerator Options:

Performance Met:

Unplanned hospital readmission within 30 days of principal procedure (G9310)

OR

Performance Not Met:

No unplanned hospital readmission within 30 days of principal procedure (G9309)
