    The IMPACT Act of 2014

    In October 2014, the bipartisan "Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation" (IMPACT) Act became law. The law intends to change and improve Medicare's post-acute care (PAC) services and how they are reported. Hospitals must begin reporting quality measures in October 2016. The first penalties for non-compliance (2 percent) begin in October 2018.

    Key components of the IMPACT Act include the ability to ensure patient choice in post-acute care decisions.
