Advocacy Open Forum: FY 2021 CMS IRF Proposed Rule

May 20, 2020

Please join the Advocacy Open Forum: IRF Proposed Rule webinar on Tuesday, June 2 at 7 pm ET/6 pm CT to provide your thoughts on the FY 2021 CMS IRF Proposed Rule.

This webinar will discuss and solicit member feedback on the CMS proposal to allow non-physician practitioners (NPPs) to perform certain duties that are currently required to be performed by a rehabilitation physician. We will also discuss and solicit member feedback on CMS’ proposal to eliminate the post-admission physician evaluation (PAPE) and to remove some of the pre-admission screening documentation requirements.

AAPM&R will be engaging the entire specialty in our response efforts. Please join to hear the tangible steps members need to take to help AAPM&R respond to this proposed rule. You will also learn about your Academy’s Future of Inpatient Rehabilitation Workgroup.
