As of July 1, 2019, Specialty Hospitals (Long Term Acute Care, Rehabilitation, Spine/Brain Injury) have transitioned from APR-DRG to Per Diem Reimbursement Methodology.
The goal was to create an equal reimbursement methodology across each classification creating equal opportunity to accept patients.
It is also easier to calculate a payment expectancy versus APR-DRG methodology that requires grouping, severity of illness, average length of stay, TrimPoint and Outlier payment.
