Medicare Part A SNF PPS Pricer Update FY 2017

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released MLN Matters article #MM9712 intended for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) submitting claims to Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) for services provided to Medicare beneficiaries paid under the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Prospective Payment System (PPS). The article summarizes Change Request (CR) 9712 that announces the availability of the payment rates used under the PPS for SNFs for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017, effective October 1, 2016, as required by statute. Make sure that your billing staffs are aware of these changes.
