Fiscal Year 2022 Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System Proposed Rule (CMS 1746-P)
• CMS estimates proposed rule that would result in increase of 1.3% to the Medicare rates for FY 2022.
• CMS is seeking comments on whether any necessary adjustment should be implemented to provide payment stability due to the PDPM not being budget neutral when implemented on October 1, 2019.
• CMS is proposing to suppress the SNF 30-Day All-Cause Readmission Measure for the FY 2022 SNF VBP Program. The reason is that circumstances caused by COVID-19 have affected the measure and the resulting scores.
