AHCA/NCAL Updates 3-Day Qualifying Hospital Stay and Benefit Period Waiver Guidance Resources

Medicare; CMS

On November 18, AHCA/NCAL updated the 3-Day Stay and Benefit-Period Waivers for Medicare Part A SNF PPS Fact Sheet here, as well as the accompanying webinar here. These changes from the prior October versions were necessary to account for updated guidance the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued since October 16. The CMS updates were related to coverage and claims processing instructions associated with the benefit period waivers. AHCA/NCAL recommends that providers review these updates, particularly staff responsible for coverage and claims processing.​​
