The article reports the possibility that the 75% reimbursement rule will be implemented in the U.S. The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission support the rule's implementation and are giving no signs that their positions will change. Based on the rule, healthcare facilities will qualify for the 75% reimbursement if the minimum percentage of a hospital's patients who require intensive multidisciplinary inpatient rehabilitation is met.
