Disablement process The health impact of disease/illness: Organ level: impairment Individual level: disability Social group/community level: handicap
Cultural Issues in conceptualization of disability 1. Disability is viewed differently in various cultures and societies 2. Disabled may be included or excluded depending on these views 3. Changes within cultural/societal areas impact directly on how the disabled are cared for and treated
Med. Model Focus: 1.Emphasis is on pathology; cause of the disability lies within the individual 2.Has objective and standardized measurements to define and characterize the condition 3.Goal of treatment is to eliminate illness/ disease/ disability
Med. model Implications: ignores the indiv's role and fx within the broader context of society and the env disability not only the result of condition itself, but of limitations, barriers PWD encounter in their social and physical env. client has little/no say in their own tx
ICF Model International standard for describing and measuring health and disability Universal classification of functional status related to numerous health conditions Tool for measuring efficiency and effectiveness of rehabilitation services
ICF model focus: Focus is on health not on the conseq. of illness Uses the health continuum dealing with PWD and Pw/o D's Promotes the concept of the disability as a result of assets or barriers found within the social or physical environment instead of as a “problem”
ICF Structure and parts: Function and Disability: 1.Body function: physiological funct. (mental, sensory, funct. of immune system)/ body structure:anatomical components; structure of nervous system, or cardiovasc. system.)
ICF Structure and parts: 2.activity:tasks of actions that individ's carry out in daily life(reading, writing, daily routeine, dressing, bathing) /participation: involvement in activities of daily life or society (social activities, going to school, having a job, engaging in rec.
ICF Part II of structure Contextual factors: 1. environmental: more than just the phys env. (building accessibility, accessible transportation) but products and technology(phones and comps), climate, and social environment(attitudes, norms, services)
ICF part II of structure 2. Personal factors: gender, race, education, occupation, human factors( past experience, temperament, and other intrinsic characteristics; state of mind)
ICF "Experience" of disability focuses on the individual and his or her personal resources, health condition, and individual environment.
Health: Health- components of health and components of well being
Function Function – all body functions, activities, and participation in society
Disability Disability – any impairment, activity limitation, or participation restrictions resulting from a health condition or personal societal, or environmental factors
Inpairment Impairment – deviation from certain generally accepted population standards of function (WHO,2001)
Functional capacity Degree of disability depends on the individual’s goals as well as the barriers or facilitators that may be present in their physical and social environment
TR and reconceptualizing disability Re-conceptualization of chronic illness and disability into the continuum of health and function helps to remove the stigma and isolation seen in the past Focus on funct. capacity rather than deficits provides optimal life experiences for the individual
Why do we need to understand the structure of our healthcare system? How we get paid for services Help clients/ pt.s navigate system Maintain health literacy
Cost of Disability/ GDP In 2005 the United States spent approximately $2 trillion on health care (16% of GDP) By 2015 the cost is projected to rise to $4 trillion (20% of GDP)
Funding: Public Public financing regulated by Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
Funding: Private Private financing through private insurers (traditional insurers & managed care orgs) Out of pocket
Who Makes Decisions Regarding What Is a Covered Service? Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS):Federal agency Facility Administrators Allied Health Professionals

7 Screening Criteria for IRF Close medical supervision 24 hour rehabilitation nursing “3-hour Rule” relatively intense level of rehabilitation services (per day) Multidisciplinary team Coordinated care program Significant practical improvement Realistic treatment goals & object
What is the 3-hour rule in a rehab setting? 3-hr rule: 3 hours of therapy for the pt each day, at least one of those therapists have to be a PT or OT. TR is considered to be per diem (lumped into the costs per diem or per day that the patient is paying to stay at the facility)
Administrators are concerned with: Are primarily concerned with: Generating dollars Protecting dollars Complying with regulations Keeping their job
Public funding: Medicare Medicare:Hospital insurance: in-patient care, short-term skilled nursing, skilled rehab care, some home health, hospice Room/board Medically necessary care (physician’s order) and “active treatment” Must be pre-approved by CMS (3 hour rule)
What is Active Treatment According to CMS? Any intervention which: Restores Remediates Rehabilitates Reduces Eliminates *Specific to functional improvement
What Settings Require Active Treatment? Inpatient psychiatric services Partial hospitalization services **Inpatient Physical Rehabilitation services (TR) Acute care services Public school systems
what services are covered and what are not/ why? will NOT pay or cover… Recreation Diversion Maintenance Comfort We need to make sure our interventions are framed in funct. terms in language and doc.
what services are covered and what are not/ why? Covered: standing x 10 mins w/o assistance to complete table top leisure task Identify 1 coping mechanism to assist with Ambulate x 175 feet within community terminology Community reintegration sessions Life mgmt Task sessions – in place of arts &
How Do TR Professionals Establish the Framework for Coverage of Services Become familiar with state and federal regulations Familiarize self with Professional Standards of Practice Know your 3rd Party Payers Get administrative support at the facility level

POS Point-of-Service Plans (POS): can choose a provider at each point of service
Methods of Payment Fee for service payment (FFS): pay specific amount for each type of service or unit of time; goal for provider is to maximize delivery of care in order to get the $
Methods of Payment Per visit payment: Fixed amount regardless of amount of time or the services provided: no $ incentive for provider--get pt out quickly (SuperCuts)
Methods of Payment Per episode: Providers are given a one-time payment for services with specific dx Large institutions providing medically complex services to specific DRGs
Methods of Payment Capitation: Applies to a group of individuals who are within the network. Provider is given a regular payment (monthly or yearly) to provide all services
Impact of Managed Care on Individuals with Disabilities Health care costs for PWD are significant: Doctor’s fees Hospitalization Prescription medications Adaptive equipment/mobility devices
Limitations of Managed Care for PWD Delay in getting appts or test results Denial of referral to specialists Inaccessible equipment in facilities Inadequate skill of docs to treat disability Need for specific MCO approval if med is not on pre-approved list Lmtd servics to assistive dev
Disease: (from med. model) refers to changes in structure and function of the body systems
Illness: refers to the individual's perception of their symptoms and how they and their family respond to expected symptoms
