SNF Re-hospitalization Program – Independent Owners Preparing for Implementation

Recorded On: 12/17/2014

The Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (H.R. 4302; Pub.L. 113-93) included several important provisions for the skilled nursing center industry. Of key importance is a re-hospitalization program. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) will withhold two percent of Medicare fee-for-services payments to skilled nursing centers. In turn, skilled nursing centers will be able to receive these withheld funds by meeting CMS and industry agreed to facility-specific re-hospitalization rates.
