The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized a new Therapy Information section on the inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) patient assessment instrument (PAI) in the fiscal year (FY) 2015 IRF Prospective Payment System (PPS) final rule.
On January 12, 2017, from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm, CMS will conduct a call focusing on this IRF-PAI therapy information data collection. During this call, CMS will focus on reviewing the types and methods of therapy collected on the IRF-PAI, examples of each type of therapy, and how to accurately code and complete the therapy information section on the IRF-PAI. Prior to the call, participants are encouraged to review the IRF-PAI Training Manual. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
To participate, registration is required. Registration will close at 12:00 pm on January 12, 2017, or when available space has been filled. The call presentation will be posted at least one day in advance on the MLN National Provider Calls and Events web page.
