ABSTRACT
The article reports on the modification of the memo for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in the U.S. The memo was issued on June 8, 2007 and updated the information for the implementation of the 75 percent rule of inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) prospective payment system (PPS). According to the agency, the imposition of the 75 percent rule helped to ensure that the Medicare beneficiaries were getting rehabilitation care in a more appropriate setting but the average spending per case continues to increase for IRFs and other post acute care settings. CMS predicted that the average payments per case for the IRFs will continue to increase.
