Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (CORF) Services

CORF is limited to Medicare deductible and coinsurance payments for Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) recipients.

Services Covered

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:

  • Physician CORF service:
    • 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.

Provider Information

A facility enrolls under a separate provider number as a CORF provider to bill for deductible and coinsurance amounts applicable to QMB recipients receiving services covered under the CORF program.
