FY 2023 Proposed Rule: How Will SNFs Weather the Impact?

Posted on: April 18, 2022

CMS has always been clear about its intention for the PDPM reimbursement model to be “budget neutral,” so the 4.6% parity adjustment outlined in FY 2023 Proposed Rule comes as no surprise.

Successful operators reap the benefits of these excellent outcomes with improved standing in their markets, resulting in increased census. They also reap the rewards of value-based purchasing incentives which can amount to as much as 2% of their total Medicare Part A reimbursement.
