Recovery Care Centers (RCCs) would be a new licensure category created in law. If allowed, these centers would be developed to provide up 72 hours of post-operative rehabilitation for patients primarily undergoing procedures at ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs). RCCs would not be subject to any of the requirements that hospitals, or nursing homes, are expected to meet. In addition, RCCs would not be required to treat the uninsured and would likely serve only paying patients.
