South Carolina’s Healthy Outcomes Plan (HOP) (Proviso 33.34) incentivizes hospitals to partner with safety net providers and community organizations to build or expand service delivery models aimed at coordinating care for chronically ill, uninsured, high utilizers of emergency department (ED) services. The size of the hospital determines the target number of participants that HOPs are required to identify and serve.
A recent study was completed to evaluate the HOP program.
