Sponsor: (No First Name Found) (No Last Name Found) [-]

Status: Referred to Committee - Referred to the Subcommittee on Health.

Summary: This bill amends the Pathway for SGR Reform Act of 2013 to specify that certain provisions of current law regarding the calculation of hospital length of stay apply to certain long-term care hospitals (LTCHs) that are permitted, under Medicare, to establish new LTCHs or increase LTCH beds.
