HHS announced $20 billion in new funding for providers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. This Phase 3 distribution was made possible through the bipartisan CARES Act and the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (which allocated $175 billion in relief funds to hospitals, skilled nursing, home health and other healthcare providers.) Skilled nursing & home health providers and others who have received Provider Relief Fund payments (and some who were previously ineligible providers) are invited to apply for additional funding to cover operating expenses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In today’s healthcare climate, change and resiliency are a requirement. When we think about healthcare reform: accountable care, bundled payment, triple aim: we think post-acute care, specifically skilled nursing and home health due to the costs associated with those services for our Medicare (and even Medicare Advantage) residents. If you are a senior living: assisted living or independent living providers, you may be thinking these changes have nothing to do with you and you would be wrong.Read More

As we continue to grow in the senior living marketplace as quality care providers of outpatient therapy and home health, we continue to see assisted living providers staying the course. They are not adapting or changing based on everything going on around them. Today is a very unique time for senior living providers. They have a huge opportunity to adapt to changing hospital and skilled nursing facility (SNF) partnership needs. Many assisted living providers respond, “But we are assisted living. That doesn’t impact us.”Read More

Based on the fact that CMS received a high volume of comments from industry stakeholders during the extended public comment period through August 2017, we expect there will be some changes to the Advance Notice Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) regarding the complete overhaul of PPS. We do know that payment reform is coming, and we must be prepared for a big change in our industry. We will stay close to the proposed changes to be released in April 2018.
HealthPRO®/Heritage strategy is to watch, to wait and to BE PREPARED! The providers who come out on top will be the ones most well prepared to weather the transition, should the system change occur as scheduled on October 1, 2018.
