Congress will be turning its attention to postacute care in Medicare with the introduction of the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act in both the US House of Representatives and Senate this week. The introduction of the bill was announced in press releases from the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means committees.
The bicameral, bipartisan bill seeks to standardize data from assessment tools across all postacute care settings in order to inform future payment reforms. APTA has been providing input on this bill to the relevant congressional committees since August 2013 and will keep members updated on the progress of the legislation.
