Important Update for Skilled Nursing Facilities - CMS Updated the SNF PDPM Web page

The SNF PPS PDPM was implemented on 10/1/2019 to replace the Resource Utilization Group, Version IV (RUG-IV) for the SNF PPS. SNF PDPM will improve the accuracy and appropriateness of payments by classifying patients into payment groups based on specific, data-driven patient characteristics, while simultaneously reducing administrative burden.

SNF providers are encouraged to bookmark the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) SNF PDPM web page and check for updates on a regular basis.
