After a hospital stay, your physician or case manager may recommend you transition to another care setting as part of your recovery. These settings—known as post-acute care—can look very different. Should you need additional care, your care team could refer you based on your abilities and goals, but as a patient, you have a choice in which provider you or your loved one go to. It's your right as a patient to choose the provider that best fits your unique abilities and goals for getting better.
