The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is holding certain skilled nursing facility claims for inpatient and swing-bed services subject to the new SNF patient-driven payment model, which took effect Oct. 1. The agency clarified today that the delays pertain to claims with multiple line items and rate codes. CMS said it also underpaid some claims in October with a single line item, with an automatic fix already in process. CMS has provided resources on PDPM, including implementation updates and frequently asked questions, at www.cms.gov.
