In this episode, I cover the fundamentals of the old payment system (or RUG levels) and how it is different from the payment model we have today. I also take a good look at Section GG, it’s impact on reimbursement and quality outcomes, how therapy specifically is paid for, group and concurrent therapy, and more!
