Indiana Medicaid Value Based Purchase Support
What is the Skilled Nursing Facility Value-Based Purchasing Program (SNF VBP)?
The SNF VBP Program focuses on better outcomes and
rewards skilled nursing facilities with incentive payments for the quality of care they give to people with Medicare, in particular reducing hospital readmissions. The SNF VBP Program moves CMS toward paying providers based on the quality, rather than the quantity, of care they give patients.
How will the program work?
- SNFs will be evaluated on a hospital readmissions measure after a patient is discharged and has a hospital admission within 30 days.
- SNFs will receive a performance score based on their individual performance and a performance score based on their comparison to other SNFs in the country.
- SNFs will receive confidential quarterly and annual reports about their performance on the program’s measure.
- SNFs will receive payment incentives based on their performance.
