The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is proposing to implement 2 new postacute care payment systems, for skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies. After the webinar, PTs will be educated on the new payment systems and how payment rates are calculated. PTs also will be educated on how these payment systems do or do not align with the work of the IMPACT Act and current status of functional measure development.
