Carl J. Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement

CMS has corrected technical errors in the 2018/19 SNF PPS rates, which are effective on 10/1/18. They have slightly revised the wage index for three regions: 

  • Glens Falls
  • New York Metro
  • Rochester 

The effect is a reduction of approximately $0.05 per RUG category for those affected regions. Attached are the revised rates as well as a link to the CMS correction notice.
