AAPM Signs AMA Letter Discouraging CMS Expansion of NPP Services in IRF Settings

The American Medical Association (AMA), AAPM, and other leading health care organizations released a letter on June 11, 2020, responding to a proposal by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that would allow non-physician providers (NPPs) to provide services at Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs) that are currently limited to rehabilitation physicians. The letter discourages the expansion by emphasizing its potential to “undermine delivery of and access to physician-led team-based care” in IRFs. Full letter.
