Payment & Reimbursement

Your Guide to Payment & Reimbursement Policy

Navigating payment and reimbursement policy for Indiana’s senior living sector.

Obtaining payment for the important services provided to Indiana’s elderly and disabled is critical to the success of communities and the hands-on care provided each and every day.  IHCA/INCAL has led the way in the development of Medicaid policy and advocacy, while AHCA/NCAL concentrates on policy and advocacy in the Medicare program, to help skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities to receive compensation for their services.

CMS Issues FY 2022 SNF Proposed Payment Rule

On April 8, 2021, the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the proposed rule for the skilled nursing facility (SNF) prospective payment system (PPS) fiscal year (FY) 2022 update.

The proposed rule includes a net market basket increase of 1.3 percent.  CMS estimates that the net market basket update would increase Medicare SNF payments by approximately $444 million in FY 2022.  The 1.3 percent net market basket is the result of statutorily-mandated adjustments.

I have appreciated the support of IHCA/INCAL for many years. Long-term and post-acute healthcare is complex and is constantly changing. The association provides a larger voice to the issues that plague our profession and hinder our ability to thrive. It also facilitates the needed tools, training and support for survival and success.
