Billing Alert for Long-Term Care

The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken things up for SNFs and affected nearly all day-to-day activities. In order to reduce the burden for SNFs, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a variety of blanket waivers to cut through red tape that SNFs typically face. The waivers are set to last as long as the pandemic is declared a national emergency, although we don’t yet know when that declaration will expire.

Billing Alert for Long-Term Care

SNF surveys have pivoted over the past few months to focus on infection control amid COVID-19 outbreaks. “CMS did refocus their efforts in the midst of the pandemic to make sure that they can provide support to the community that we serve, as well as facilities by making sure that facilities were compliant with infection control practices,” explains Stefanie Corbett, DHA, in the Post-Acute Advisor podcast “Infection Control Surveys and Reopening SNFs,” available on SoundCloud. However, resident care is something that all SNFs should focus on every single day and be prepared for when regular surveys resume.
