The Medicare Resident Classification System (RC-I) for skilled nursing facilities (SNF) is targeted for implementation on October 1, 2018, per CMS’ May 4, 2017 Advanced Notice of Proposed Rule Making. While not yet final, many industry stakeholders believe RCS will be implemented as scheduled, albeit with minor refinements to program mechanics.

Regardless of the ultimate specifics, RCS will undoubtedly have a dramatic impact on SNF revenue distribution, ancillary contracting, financial modeling and care management strategies. Simply stated, this is the most challenging payment system transition many SNFs will experience for the foreseeable future. Mastering the complete realignment of clinical and financial incentives requires significant preparation. While it will be a few months before CMS finalizes the rules governing RCS, providers cannot afford to delay preparing for the inevitable RCS implementation transition – possibly only 10 short months away.

This RCS “primer” will explain program mechanics and highlight revenue and operating sensitivities. Marc Zimmet, president of Zimmet Healthcare Services, LLC, will lead this webinar and will conduct resident classification simulations that compare RUG-IV reimbursement to anticipated RCS rate composites.

Don’t miss this opportunity to get a head start on your RCS preparations!
