Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facilities
This page provides basic information about being certified as a Medicare and/or Medicaid Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (CORF) provider and includes links to applicable laws, regulations, and compliance information.
CORFs must provide coordinated outpatient diagnostic, therapeutic, and restorative services, at a single fixed location, to outpatients for the rehabilitation of injured, disabled or sick individuals. Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology services may be provided in an off-site location.
The following are considered “core” services that a CORF must provide:
- consultation with and medical supervision of non-physician staff, establishment and review of the plan of treatment and other medical and facility administration activities
- physical therapy services, social or psychological services
- CORFs are surveyed every six years at a minimum.
