IRF Services: Follow Medicare Billing Requirements

In a recent report, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) determined that payments for Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) services did not comply with Medicare billing requirements. Medical record documentation did not support that IRF care was reasonable and necessary. CMS revised the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs): Improving Documentation Positively Impacts CERT Web-Based Training (WBT) course available through the Medicare Learning Network Learning Management System and the IRF Prospective Payment System Booklet to help you bill correctly.
