AHCA Statement on Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System Proposed Rule

Medicare; Reimbursement


Washington, D.C. — Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of the American Health Care Association (AHCA), made the following statement regarding the Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System (SNF PPS) fiscal year 2023 proposed rule released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) today. 
“Any reduction in government resources could deepen the economic crisis currently within the long term and post-acute care sector. Many nursing homes already face imminent closure, and this Medicare cut could force more seniors across the country to relocate and find alternative care farther away from family and loved ones.
“It is critical that Medicare remain a reliable funding source and reflect the increasing costs providers are facing to ensure our vulnerable residents can access the care they need. We look forward to submitting constructive comments to CMS on this proposed rule.”
