On Friday, July 31, 2020, CMS released the FY 2021 Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Prospective Payment System (PPS) Final Rule. In this rule, CMS finalized payment updates for SNF PPS, adopted the revised Office of Management and Budget (OMB) statistical area delineations (which modifies wage index calculations for many SNF providers), finalized changes to the ICD-10-CM code mappings based on stakeholder comments, and made minor administrative changes to the SNF Value-based Purchasing (VBP) program.
