What are the potential risks if your systems are not in place to comply with the CMS rule for IRFs?

In April, 2009 CMS proposed significant changes to for payment rates for FY 2010.

Join nationally know rehabilitation expert Frances J. Fowler, FAAHC, for this 60-minute look in to the changes.

Fran provides a checklist of issues you need to face to comply with the rule, a list of key steps to ensure tools reflect medical necessity, and how you can guarantee financial success under the 2010 rule.
