Feedback Reports / Public Reporting: SNF VBP Gears Up

By Caralyn Davis, Staff Writer - May 16, 2017

Effective Oct. 1, 2018, all skilled nursing facilities participating in the skilled nursing facility prospective payment system (SNF PPS) will be hit with a 2 percent reduction in their traditional fee-for-service Medicare Part A payments under the Skilled Nursing Facility Value-Based Purchasing (SNF VBP) program. Between 50 and 70 percent of the amount withheld will simultaneously be redistributed to high performers in the program as a value-based incentive payment. Providers will receive advance notice of their performance via quarterly confidential feedback reports.
