Introducing IRF PRICERActive™ Reimbursement Components

The Inpatient Rehab Facility Prospective Payment System (IRF PPS) is now the primary reimbursement methodology for inpatient rehabilitation hospital claims paid by Medicare. The primary patient classification mechanism is the CMG (Case Mix Group). Patient information including age, sex, and condition along with detail diagnosis data from the patient record are processed through a complex algorithm to calculate the CMG. Associated with each CMG is a comorbidity indicator with which weighting factors and statistical averages for the length of stay are associated. These data and other hospital-specific and geographic cost factors are the input to the complex IRF PRICER programs used by Medicare fiscal intermediaries to compute Medicare reimbursement for a hospital stay.

IRF PRICERActive™ Enterprise Components duplicate the calculations used by Medicare for inpatient rehab hospital claim payment. IRF PRICERActive‘ uses the same formulas and Medicare hospital-specific data that the Medicare intermediaries use to calculate claim payments. With IRF PRICERActive‘ you can calculate an estimated Medicare payment for an inpatient rehab facility claim.
