Beginning October 1, 2019, hospitals that are excluded from the Medicare Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS), including psychiatric hospitals, children’s hospitals, and cancer hospitals, may now have IPPS-excluded rehabilitation or psychiatric units, provided these units meet the applicable Medicare rules for excluded units. In this episode, Darlene Davis discusses the impact of new guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) related to this change and how CMS intends to recognize these units moving forward.
