On May 8, 2018, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed a new Medicare Part A reimbursement system for skilled nursing facilities, called Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM). The Center for Medicare Advocacy issued an Alert on the proposed rules (“CMS Tries Again: Another New Skilled Nursing Facility Medicare Reimbursement System Proposed – If Implemented, Would Gut Therapy,” May 17, 2018) and has now drafted comments, which are available at http://www.medicareadvocacy.org/cma-comments-on-nursing-home-reimbursement-rules/.
Comments to CMS on PDPM are due June 26.
 82 Fed. Reg. 21018, 21034-21080 (May 8, 2018).
