MedPAC to Discuss Payment Recommendations

This week on Thursday and Friday, the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) is meeting to discuss Medicare payment adequacy and recommended updates. This will include several LeadingAge member services such as skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, and hospice providers. LeadingAge anticipates that MedPAC will continue in their traditional recommendations that would be to hold level or cut Medicare provider rates for post-acute care and hospice providers. Updates will be prepared after the meeting. LeadingAge continues to advocate with CMS and Congress for fair and adequate payment rates across all services our members provide.
