    Introduction to the AHCA FFS to MA Levels Calculator Presentation

    This is available to AHCA members. 
  • Contains 1 Component(s)

    The AHCA urban provider patient-level MA risk calculator takes three user entered data points to compare the MA plan offered rate for an individual patient with a facility-specific comparable Medicare fee-for-service per-diem rate determined by high or low nursing, therapy, and non-therapy ancillary care needs identified by the Patient Intake or Reassessment MA Risk Classification tool.

    This is available to AHCA members. 

    The AHCA urban provider patient-level MA risk calculator takes three user entered data points to compare the MA plan offered rate for an individual patient with a facility-specific comparable Medicare fee-for-service per-diem rate determined by high or low nursing, therapy, and non-therapy ancillary care needs identified by the Patient Intake or Reassessment MA Risk Classification tool.  The three data points are:

      • Facility Name
      • Facility Wage Index Adjustment Factor 
      • MA Plan Levels Rate Offered

    Providers should only use this file if they know the SNF is located in a county located in a Medicare core based statistical area (CBSA) designated as ‘Urban’.  If uncertain, providers should use the Wage Index Adjustment Factor Lookup Tool to identify the SNF’s rural/urban designation and wage index factor.

    The AHCA MA patient-level risk calculator requires a provider to know whether they are classified as ‘Urban’ or a ‘Rural’ provider for Medicare payment purposes. For providers that do not know this detail, providers only need to know the county their SNF is located to use this wage index lookup file to quickly find the wage index adjustment factor that applies to the facility.

    This simple tool is designed to be utilized at critical decision-making times - Prior to Accepting the Admission – Upon a Significant Change in Care Needs – and – Upon Contract Initiation and Renewal

    This is available to AHCA members.

    This simple tool is designed to be utilized at critical decision-making times - Prior to Accepting the Admission – Upon a Significant Change in Care Needs – and – Upon Contract Initiation and Renewal

    1. Like the SNF PDPM pre-admission process - providers should ask the MA plan and admitting hospital about information necessary to assure that the SNF is able to meet the patient’s care needs.  Special attention should be paid to those patient characteristics and clinical need factors associated with high-cost care needs to best assure that the SNF can provide the necessary level of care as well as receive an appropriate MA plan rate.    
    2. Additionally, some SNF patients admitted for care under MA plan coverage may experience a change in status and require an updated care plan.  Special attention should be made to assess whether the change in care needs is sufficient to justify a request for the MA plan to adjust the patient’s assigned rate ‘Level’.
    3. This tool can provide a quick analysis of the overall risk associated with the proposed reimbursement ‘Levels’.

     This tool differentiates patient care needs for nursing, therapy, and non-therapy ancillary services into high or low categories necessary for evaluation of MA levels payment risk in the rural or urban patient-level risk calculator tool.
