CHA DataSuite Issues 2020 Skilled-Nursing Facility Proposed Rule Analysis

For CFOs

This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

CHA DataSuite has released hospital-specific analyses of the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2020 Medicare skilled-nursing facility (SNF) prospective payment system (PPS) proposed rule, intended to show providers how Medicare fee-for-service payments may change from FFY 2019 to FFY 2020 based on the policies set forth in the final rule.

The analysis incorporates changes to SNF payments mandated by Congress and implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Changes modeled in the analysis include the market basket update, an Affordable Care Act-mandated productivity reduction, the Patient-Driven Payment Model impact, budget neutrality adjustments, and wage index and labor-related share impacts.

Impacts in the analysis do not reflect the 2% sequestration reduction to all lines of Medicare payment authorized by Congress and currently in effect through FFY 2027. That impact, as it applies to SNF PPS-specific payment, has been calculated separately and is provided at the bottom of the impact table.
