Providers Face Greater Risk of Claim Denial Under New PPS Rules

Posted on October 10, 2011 in Long-Term Care, Home Health & Hospice

Written by: Bufford, David W.

Effective October 1, new PPS rules for fiscal year 2012 require nursing homes to diligently review claims prior to submission.  As previously discussed, significant cuts in SNF reimbursement are aimed mostly at therapy services.   SNFs submitting claims under the previous rules can expect high rates of denials and rejections.  Even facilities billing under the new rules face denials and rejections for any errors or inconsistencies in the information submitted.
