Physical therapy services represent a significant portion of Medicare expenditures in post-acute care settings — services provided in inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs), long-term care hospitals (LTCHs), skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), and via home health agencies (HHAs) under Medicare Part A. PTs practicing in post-acute care are integral to improving the quality of care provided to patients while reducing overall costs. This is particularly true under new value-based payment initiatives such as bundled payment models, accountable care organizations, and patient-centered medical homes.

To better serve members working in post-acute care settings, APTA has launched the Medicare Post-acute Care Reform webpage, which provides resources and updates on payment reform efforts that affect all postacute care settings-IRF, SNF, LTCH, and HHA.
