Let Quality of Care Lead to Accurate and Appropriate Reimbursement: Skilled Nursing Facilities will see many changes as we approach Fiscal Year 2019 in order to ensure we are accurately and appropriately reimbursed for the care we provide. In addition, the Final Rule for Medicare and Medicaid and the Requirements of Participation (RoP) have overhauled our regulatory requirements. The changes are cumbersome and complicated. What is the bottom line for clinicians? What do these changes mean for the Clinical Leaders? What do Clinical Leaders need to know? We need to become a higher quality Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)! This course will detail the underlying clinical themes every clinical leader will need to address to ensure compliance with upcoming regulatory and reimbursement changes.
