FY 2022 Medicare Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System Proposed Rule Summary

On April 12, 2021, CMS published a proposed rule on the Medicare inpatient rehabilitation facility prospective payment system (IRF PPS) for federal fiscal year (FY) 2022. In addition to provisions that would update the IRF PPS payment rates and outlier threshold for FY 2022, the rule proposes to add one new measure to the IRF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) and modify the denominator for another measure currently under the IRF QRP, beginning with the FY 2023 IRF QRP.
