Note: CMS revised this article to reflect a revised CR 11859, issued on August 19, 2020. The CR revision shows that effective for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021, a 5 percent cap will be adopted and applied to all Skilled Nursing Facility providers on any decrease to a provider’s FY 2021 final wage index from that provider’s final wage index of the prior fiscal year (FY 2020). CMS added that language to the article. Also, CMS revised the CR release date, transmittal number, and the web address of the CR. All other information remains the same

CR 11859 provides information on the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 updates to the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Prospective Payment System (PPS) payment rates, as required by statute. Make sure your billing staffs are aware of these updates.
