Rehab facilities in line for Medicare raise—and must report quality data to get it
Modern Healthcare

Inpatient rehabilitation facilities would get a 1.7% rate increase from Medicare in fiscal 2016 under a proposed rule the CMS issued Thursday.

The policy would deliver $130 million more to rehabilitation facilities than they received in fiscal 2015. However, the increase is significantly smaller than the 2.4% raise they received in fiscal 2015. The rule would also make a portion of reimbursement contingent on reporting on several new quality measures.
