SNF Proposed Payment and Policy Changes for FY 2021

On April 10, CMS issued a proposed rule [CMS-1737-P] for FY 2021 that updates the Medicare payment rates and the quality programs for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs). This proposed rule is part of CMS’s continuing efforts to strengthen the Medicare program by better aligning payment rates for these facilities with the costs of providing care and increasing transparency so that patients are able to make informed choices. CMI’s levels have not changed. Below are the proposed FY 21 payment rates compared to FY 20.
