Last week, KHA submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on the fiscal year (FY) 2015 proposed rule for long-term acute care hospital (LTACH) prospective payment systems (PPS). The comments focused on:
- Proposed changes to the greater than three-day interrupted stay policy;
- Elimination of the five percent readmission rule that pertains to interrupted stays in co-located LTACHs;
- Proposed changes to the long-term acute care quality reporting (LTACHQR) program; and
- FY 2018 Measurement Proposals.
