When will RCS-1 become a fact of life? How will it affect SNF payments and workflow?
Skilled nursing facilities may soon understand what kind of Medicare Part A payment reform is on the horizon and when it will begin. Last May, CMS signaled it is working on the Resident Classification System-1 (RCS-1), a new payment model for SNFs. It released an Advance Notice of their intent to release the payment model through a rule at some point in the future.
CMS has received more than 200 comments and recently stated on an Open Door Forum that there is no immediate timeline for RCS-1. However, we expect CMS to make changes to what was released last year. It’s wise for providers to understand where CMS is moving and be prepared for what could be released this year.
This on-demand webinar will help you understand what RCS-1 changes will mean to your organization and when the changes could take effect. Take advantage of valuable insights from one of our industry’s leading experts on regulatory change.
