Dobson | DaVanzo presented a critique of efforts to build a unified post-acute care (PAC) prospective payment system (PPS) at the annual board meeting of a major PAC trade association in December 2019. In light of current reforms to PAC PPS affecting institutional health settings, e.g. skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and long-term acute care (LTAC) facilities, our team commented on the practicality of the timelines for the development of unified PPS embodied in Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act.
