Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement

Lincoln Surgical Hospital is participating in a Medicare initiative called the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model.

Medicare is using the CJR model to encourage Lincoln Surgical Hospital to work more closely with Physicians and other health care providers that help patients recover after discharge from the hospital, including nursing homes (skilled nursing facilities), home health agencies, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, and long-term care hospitals. By working together, your health care providers and suppliers are planning more efficient, high quality care as you undergo treatment. The model is expected to lower the cost of care to Medicare but your costs for covered care will not increase due to these changes.

Medicare will monitor your care to ensure you and others are receiving high quality care.

If you have questions or want more information about the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model, call Lincoln Surgical Hospital at 402-484-0884 or call 1-800-MEDICARE. You can also find additional information at
