The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) conducted a national provider call on January 12, 2017, that focused on therapy information data collection for the inpatient rehabilitation facility patient assessment instrument (IRF-PAI). The therapy information section on the IRF-PAI was finalized in the fiscal year (FY) 2015 IRF prospective payment system (PPS) final rule. The call included a review of examples of each type of therapy and how to accurately code and complete the therapy information section on the IRF-PAI. To assist with the call, CMS utilized a PowerPoint presentation for providers to refer to. The written transcript and audio recording of the national provider call will be posted in approximately two weeks.
