The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has criteria for classifying inpatient rehabilitation facilities. The criterion focuses on medical necessity and functional capabilities. Please keep in mind that all potential admissions to INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Inpatient Rehabilitation must be clinically stable and able to tolerate at least three hours of rehabilitative therapy at least five days per week. Under this ruling, some patients may no longer qualify for inpatient rehabilitation but instead may have a course of intensive outpatient rehabilitation therapy, home care, or may be sent to a skilled nursing facility.
