Are You Prepared for RCS-1?
Right now, many of you are wondering how the proposed Resident Classification System, Version 1, or RCS-1 for short, will impact your business. To be clear, this new reimbursement model is not just a revision of the current Resource Utilization Group (RUG) system. It’s a total overhaul of the payment model used by SNFs since 1998.
Based on what we currently know, reimbursement under RCS-1 will be primarily driven by a patient’s diagnosis, rather than the amount of therapy provided. This will impact the way future services are managed and delivered.
Although RCS-1 is currently still under consideration, we’ve assembled all the information we’ve learned so far. Our goal is to help you better understand this new, game-changing payment model.
