CORF (Comprehensive Outpatient
Rehabilitation Facility) is a Medicare program first established by
Congressional mandate in 1981. Its purpose was to provide a facility offering a
variety of therapy based diagnostic and restorative services in an outpatient
setting under one roof. While second only to a traditional hospital in the
ability to offer a multitude of services under a single Medicare provider
number, the CORF program has increasingly become a viable option for clinic
expansion. Recent estimates place the number of existent CORF facilities at
under 600. Current trends in therapy based treatment regimes and more intense
focus on less expensive, alternative treatment offerings work to foster
increased interest in this program. Cost savings resultant of outpatient
treatment based services helps to reduce the pressure on federally funded health
care programs such as Medicare.
