Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

CMS has issued the 2015 SNF PPS Final Rule.  As announced in the proposed rule a few months ago, Medicare rates to SNFs will increase approximately 2%, effective 10/1/14.  In addition, certain wage indexes are being revised and phased in over a two-year period.

AHCA has provided a memorandum containing full details related to the Final Rule, as well as links to the related Federal Register

NYSHFA will soon begin calculation of the FY 2014/15 Medicare PPS rates and distribute to the membership within the next week or so.
