CMS settles denied claims dispute with inpatient rehab providers
Modern Healthcare

The CMS has agreed to settle appeals from inpatient rehabilitation facilities regarding denied Medicare claims.

The settlement ends a two-year dispute with the inpatient rehabilitation industry after they were frequently denied Medicare claims for a variety of reasons, including if the patient missed a few minutes of their minimum time for daily therapy. Medicare would only pay for the therapy if beneficiaries participated at least three hours a day.
