Community Based Care Transition Program (CCTP - Section 3026)

The Community Based Care Transition Program (CCTP) is a Medicare demonstration project funded under section 3026 of the Affordable Care Act of 2010. The goals of the demonstration project are "to reduce hospital readmissions, test sustainable funding streams for care transition services, maintain or improve quality of care, and document measureable savings to the Medicare program."
Acute Care Hospitals with high readmission rates are eligible to apply for the demonstration project so long as they are in partnership with a community based organization (CBO) that provides care tranisition services. Attached below is a copy of the presenetation of this program at the CMS National Conference on Care Transitions back on December 3, 2010.
