Reimbursable Bad Debt: Maximizing Medicare Cost Report Collections
October 18, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
The 2017 Medicare Part A SNF co-payment amount for days 21 – 100 of a covered stay is $164.50 per day. Facilities that are unable to collect these fees may recoup much of it via the annual Medicare cost report, provided that associated regulations are followed. Bad debt is the most commonly audited cost report item, so staff must take efforts to ensure the SNF receives all reimbursement to which it is entitled. This session will provide the tools needed to meet Medicare’s strict reimbursement guidelines, and comes just in time to ensure 2017 reporting compliance.
