Follow-Up After Hospitalization

One of the best things we can do for a member who has experienced a psychiatric/substance abuse hospitalization is to ensure they have and keep an aftercare appointment with a behavioral health provider—preferably within seven days—but may occur within 30 days of discharge. This important step contributes to aftercare compliance and helps prevent readmissions.

Facilities and outpatient providers play a vital role in helping members receive timely ambulatory follow-up appointments after hospitalization from an acute care setting.
