2021 CMS Proposed Payment and Policy Changes For SNFs

Recently, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a proposed rule for skilled nursing facility (SNF) payments for the coming year.

If finalized, the rule would see nursing homes receive a 2.3% Medicare pay bump, update the SNF prospective payment system (PPS) wage index and update the way IDC-10 codes map under the new Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM). 

For visibility to the CMS fact sheet see below.
