Webinar Summary

The 2015 IRF PPS Final Rule has just been published! 66 comments were received by CMS and taken into consideration for publishing the final instructions. Watch the webinar to review the highlights of what stays and what is deferred when comparing this to the proposed rule put out earlier this spring.

Attendees will:

  • Appreciate the changes made from 2014 to 2015 in regards to IRF PAI elements added to the 2015 IRF PAI.;
  • Understand what elements previously proposed to occur sooner will be postponed until the 2016 rule (Oct.2015);
  • Gain knowledge of the areas and links at the CMS website where they can download updated data files pertinent to preparation and training of staff to follow the rules as outlined prior to Oct. 1, 2015.

Mediware’s Darlene D’Altorio-Jones walks you through these final changes and gives you a glimpse of what changes will take effect in the future.
