Jason Healy on CMS proposal to extend “Review Choice Demonstration” (RCD) to IRFs

CMS announced a new Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) in December that will subject IRFs in certain states to either pre-claim review or post-payment review for 100% of claims. CMS is accepting comments until February 16, 2021 regarding the collection of information associated with this new RCD. It is important for stakeholders to submit comments to CMS. In the past, CMS has delayed demonstrations and made substantive changes in response to public comments.
