“Nursing Facilities Need to Weather the ‘Reimbursement Storm”

Nursing Facilities Need to Weather the ‘Reimbursement Storm’ of Medicare Advantage,” by Amy Stulick, Skilled Nursing News



“With Medicare Advantage revenue “significantly lower” than fee-for-service reimbursement, a new Zimmet Healthcare Services Group analysis says, skilled nursing facilities need to weather today’s “reimbursement storm” in order to make it to the incoming wave of baby boomers that will need facility services.”


LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:

Medicaid reimbursement rates were already less than the cost of providing the care. With Medicare Advantage in the mix there is another filter screening out revenue between the payer and the patient.
