SNF Medicare Bad Debt

Per the CMS final rule published November 9, 2012, any SNF Medicare bad debt not claimed with the 2012 Medicare cost report will only be reimbursable at 65% for private pays and 88% for copays of dual eligibles (those who also have Medicaid eligibility). This 88% percent will be further reduced in the next two years until it is phased in to only 65%.   This rule can be found at the 2012 Federal Register , pages 67518 and 67519. Page 67519 has a clear chart showing the reductions.
