ABSTRACT
The article reports on the proposal by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for new, more accurate fiscal year 2009 payment rates for Medicare skilled nursing facilities that more closely reflect differences in patient care needs. To help determine a daily payment rate, the Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System uses a resource classification known as Resource Utilization Groups. CMS proposes to recalibrate the case-mix weights in order to establish budget neutrality on a prospective basis.
