Thirty-day hospital readmission following discharge from postacute rehabilitation in fee-for-service Medicare patients.

It found that among postacute rehabilitation facilities providing services to Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries, 30-day readmission rates ranged from 5.8 percent to 18.8 percent for selected impairment groups.
