SNF Reimbursement Changes
The House bill contains a number of changes to the way skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are reimbursed by Medicare, most of which do not appear in the Senate bill.
If you aren’t involved in operating a skilled nursing facility, give this post a miss. It’s pretty technical.
The changes involve the following topics. You’ll find the details of each of them here.
- Market basket updates
- RUG case-mix recalibration adjustment
- New case-mix classification system
- New outlier adjustments
- Part D billing requirement for pharmacies affiliated with long-term care facilities
- Separate billing for clinical social worker services
