Know the Ins and Outs of 'FY 2019 Prospective Payment System Update'

On July 31, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a new final rule that will have major implications for skilled nursing facilities. The final rule goes into effect Oct. 1, 2018, but the biggest changes — “revised case-mix methodology, PDPM, and associated policies” — won’t be implemented until Oct. 1, 2019. The patient-driven payment model (PDPM), which aims to reduce administrative and paperwork burdens, means big changes in reimbursement structures for skilled nursing facilities.

In the meantime, facilities will have many adjustments to make.

Medical coding and billing for skilled nursing facilities are complicated. Getting reimbursement for your services depends on meeting a growing number of regulatory restrictions. Amid today’s challenging healthcare landscape, your staff must be up to speed on every requirement to avoid revenue loss.
