“Every IRF leader I speak with is frustrated with the Medicare audit and appeals process, but too few IRF leaders put their money where their mouth is,” said Felice Loverso, President of the FAIR Fund and President and CEO of Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare. “The FAIR Fund’s work benefits all IRFs and we need everyone to lend a hand so we are all pulling in the same direction. That’s the only way to help level the playing field on IRF audits and appeals.”
