ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the volatility for inpatient rehabilitation facilities and their patients being caused by the impact of the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid 75% rule. The facilities report that because of the rule approximately 88,000 fewer Medicare beneficiaries were treated during the first two years of the rule showing that Medicare has gone too far in restricting access to inpatient care. The article encourages readers to ask their legislators for a legislative solution.
