More Points = Higher Reimbursement

QuILTSS (Quality Improvement in Long Term Services and Supports) is a TennCare value-based purchasing initiative that rewards long-term care providers delivering a person-centered, high-quality model of care.  The state of Tennessee awards nursing facilities 10 bonus points for being accredited by The Joint Commission. When combined with points gained for additional quality metrics met, this advantage can add up to sizable reimbursement for nursing facilities in Tennessee.
