SUMMARY: We are issuing this advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) to solicit public comments on potential options we may consider for revising certain aspects of the existing skilled nursing facility (SNF) prospective payment system (PPS) payment methodology to improve its accuracy, based on the results of our SNF Payment Models Research (SNF PMR)project. In particular, we are seeking comments on the possibility of replacing the SNF PPS’existing case-mix classification model, the Resource Utilization Groups, Version 4 (RUG-IV),with a new model, the Resident Classification System, Version I (RCS-I).
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a live webcast for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. ET.
The focus of this training will be to assist providers from the following care settings in better understanding how Review and Correct Reports fit within the overall Quality Reporting Program: Skilled Nursing Facilities, Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities, and Long-Term Care Hospitals. Additionally, the training will provide information about re-submitting data to correct errors prior to the quarterly submission deadlines to ensure the accuracy of the data which will ultimately be publicly displayed.
