Effective Jan. 1, all managed care plans must authorize and cover medically necessary LTC services at skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs). During the webinar, the Department of Health Care Services will explain what this transition means for SNFs.  

Topics include:  

  • Authorization processes, including transportation coordination, and managed care plan responsibilities  
  • Per diem rates for routine services  
  • Continuity of care requirements  
  • Care management and coordination
