Fiscal Year 2025 Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System Proposed Rule

Event Description: 

On March 27, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed rule to update Medicare payment policies and rates under the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) Prospective Payment System (PPS) and the IRF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) for fiscal year (FY) 2025. CMS proposes a 2.8% increase in IRF PPS payment rates. Additionally, CMS proposes adding four assessment items to the IRF QRP, modifying one assessment item, and removing one from the IRF-Patient Assessment Instrument (PAI). CMS is also seeking feedback with two Requests for Information (RFIs) on quality measure concepts under consideration for future IRF QRP years and a star rating system for publicly reporting IRF QRP measures on Care Compare. 

CMS will accept comments through Monday, April 29.
