AHA expresses support of The Resetting the Impact Act (TRIA) of 2021. By taking into account unforeseen changes since its passage in 2014, this important legislation will reset the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act to reflect 2021 considerations. Specifically, this reset will allow policymakers to first complete the in-process collection of patient assessment data required to develop a unified payment model for PAC, as well as focus this effort on data that reflect current standard operations of the PAC field.
