Just curious how the current situation is affecting your inpatient service. Some insurance companies are no longer requiring prior auth. Now the bill passed yesterday did away with the 3-hour therapy tolerance requirement. We’re expecting our rehab unit (at an academic medical center) will be full constantly, significant pressure from acute primary teams to take patients, and consults to increase drastically. How are y’all dealing with it?

Below is the article that AAPMR is citing for guidance to follow for inpatient rehab, SNF and LTAC.
