CMS released the 2018 IRF PPS Final Rule in July, and after last year’s changes, inpatient rehab providers can relax since there are only a few minor changes required for this year. However, big changes are expected for FY 2019. Our clinical team is ready to help, prepare, and train your staff so that you can stay ahead of upcoming CMS regulatory changes.
To help you navigate the changes, Mediware’s Clinical Consultant, Virginia Littlepage, M.S., CCC-SLP, has prepared a review of the information included in the final rule, specific to IRF-PAI and payment changes.
Here are a few things you will learn during this webinar:
- Review of all changes presented in the final rule
- Understand the changes from the proposed rule to the final rule
- Receive recommendations on how to prepare for FY 2019 changes
