The Bottom Line

In order to address provider’s concerns regarding COVID-19, we have created a coronavirus forum where providers can connect with one another. The forum can include topics such as supplies, visitation, concerns, regulations, mandates, infection control, payment, staffing, etc. You’re not alone in this, we have you covered. Visit the forum to post questions, concerns, and tips and receive input from other providers across the nation. Join here.

The Bottom Line

As COVID-19 spreads throughout the U.S., LTC providers face unique challenges to keep their high-risk residents safe. In an effort to fully understand the challenges SNFs are currently facing as a result of the virus, we’d like readers to complete a survey to tell us about their challenges.

In order to aid home health and LTC providers as they navigate COVID-19, we have also launched a Post Acute Care Coronavirus response page to provide resources and solutions. Key survey findings will be shared on our Coronavirus Solution Center.

The Bottom Line

Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) initial claims that are processed out of sequence are not paying the correct Variable Per Diem (VPD)-adjusted rate. Also, all adjustment claims are not processing correctly. Claims need to process in date of service order for each stay for the VPD to calculate correctly. CMS states it will correct this issue in October.

The Bottom Line

Ideally the admission is coded as soon as possible upon admission, prior to entry of orders in the electronic medical record (EMR). This may not be a complete listing but should include diagnosis to support medications and treatments being provided to the resident.
