Proposed Medicare Reimbursement Changes

Last week NASL, and other senior care organizations, submitted concerns about proposed Medicare reimbursement system changes to CMS. They believe proposed changes are neither simple nor a refinement of the current system. Plus, they have concerns about RCS-1 beneficiary protections.

Linda Kolleng, Symbria vice president of Rehab and NASL board member, had the following to say, “There is no doubt that the current reimbursement system needs to be revised. Through my participation in NASL’s RCS-1 workgroup, the comments collected are representative of all party concerns. We are hopeful that CMS will consider these comments and explore further options before creating a final rule”. To review NASL’s comments, please click here.
