Can a person enter and then leave a basket of care or be excluded from enrolling in a basket of care entirely?
Because uniformity is one of the goals of baskets of care, and because patients sometimes have more complicated health care needs, it is possible that a person could be excluded from enrolling in a basket of care or from continuing to receive health care services through a basket of care after enrollment. Upon exclusion, a patient would continue to receive health care services through their normal health insurance coverage. As part of their work in developing the baskets of care, the subcommittees may include recommendations for situations in which patients would be excluded from a basket of care. It may also be possible to have a situation in which care delivered through a basket of care could be interrupted due to an unexpected acute health care need, and then returned to following the resolution of the acute episode.
