2015/16 CMS Proposed Rule Analysis

Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

AHCA has prepared a detailed analysis of the 2015/16 CMS proposed fiscal rule (see member mailing 4/16/15).

In addition to outlining key fiscal and quality related provisions of the rule, AHCA has provided a SNF PPS Medicare rate calculator (AHCA password required.  If you forgot your AHCA password, go the NYSHFA website for user id and password) to project PPS rates going forward.  In addition, the FY 2016 rule includes preliminary proposals for implementation of the SNF rehospitalization program and the first set of proposed quality measures mandated by the IMPACT Act.

NYSHFA will continue to update members on CMS’ final decisions.

Note:  (NYSHFA will also provide members a complete set of regional 2015/16 PPS rates well in advance of the 10/1/15 effective date).
