Descriptive information on inpatient charges for a sample of 151 individuals discharged from three Boston area medical rehabilitation
facilities is presented in this article. The total charges for inpatient rehabilitation were nearly $3 million, and the mean
charge was $19,568. Also presented are a description of how charges vary by medical, demographic, social, and external factors
and an identification of predictors of total charges for inpatient medical rehabilitation. These results establish a reference
point for developing prospective payment systems for inpatient medical rehabilitation.
