Corrected Medicare SNF PPS Rate List Published

On Oct. 4, 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a correction making minor updates to Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Medicare Part A rates published in the SNF PPS final rule in August. The changes are small but impact almost every RUG rate by modifying the base rate components and wage index calculations. Base rates decrease slightly, while all wage indexes in New York increase slightly. The changes are no higher than 13 cents.

LeadingAge NY has updated the SNF PPS Summary Memo and rate listing to reflect this change. The memo is available here, and the rate listing in Excel format may be downloaded here.
