MedPAC Report

Written by Selena Horner | Jul 5, 2017 10:00:00 AM

I haven't taken the time to read the whole document - it's a long one.

MedPAC recommends changes for Medicare payment. For post acute care, MedPAC recommends a prospective payment system. The focus will be on the patient and on patient characteristics versus the treatment setting.  MedPAC supports a unified payment for skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, and long-term care hospitals. 

The report mentions MIPS and how that needs to be overhauled.

You can view the MedPAC report here.  Happy reading!

Until next time,
