IRF PPS Proposed Rule FY2017

On April 26, 2016, in Archives, by AQ-IQ LLC

This proposed rule would update the prospective payment rates for inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) for federal fiscal year (FY) 2017 as required by the statute. As required by section 1886(j)(5) of the Act, this rule includes the classification and weighting factors for the IRF prospective payment system’s (IRF PPS’s) case-mix groups and a description of the methodologies and data used in computing the prospective payment rates for FY 2017. We are also proposing to revise and update quality measures and reporting requirements under the IRF quality reporting program (QRP).
