Policy Snapshot

February 9, 2024

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently clarified that hospice and skilled nursing facility (SNF) medical directors and administrators are always considered managing employees for Medicare provider enrollment purposes. CMS is calling on all hospices and SNFs to report all current managing employees. If you haven’t reported a medical director or administrator, report them now. See the CMS Medicare Program Integrity Manual: CY 2024 Home Health Prospective Payment System Updates MLN Matters Article for more information.

CMS finalized both the Home Health PPS final rule and the Nursing Home Transparency final rule several months ago and is now working on additional guidance on what information will be reported publicly and where that information will be made available.
