cmsannouncementClick here for the pre-publication copy of the CMS proposed rule entitled “Proposed Fiscal Year 2014 Payment and Policy Changes for Medicare Skilled Nursing Facilities”. The proposed regulation contains provisions which will increase aggregate payments to SNFs in FY 2014 by $500 million or 1.4 percent above payments made in FY 2013. Note particularly the provisions concerning the reporting of distinct therapy days. Among other things affecting reporting of therapy days, the rule proposes to add an item to the Minimum Data Set to record the number of distinct calendar days of therapy provided by all rehabilitation disciplines to a beneficiary over the seven-day look-back period. Comments on the proposed rule will be accepted by CMS through the close of business on July 1st.
