Today, the House passed a 12-month patch of the current SGR formula and it now heads to the Senate for a vote. As you may recall, substantial progress had been made on a permanent repeal and replacement of the formula, but negotiators could not come to an agreement on the offsets for a longer-term fix before the March 31st expiration deadline. Thus, Congress is resorting to another patch.

Today, Ways & Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI), Ranking Member Sandy Levin (D-MI) as well as Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-UT) released a bicameral, bipartisan discussion draft titled, “Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014.” The proposal seeks to set the stage for Medicare payment reform for post-acute care (PAC), including for Long Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), and Home Health Agencies (HHAs). The legislation focuses around standardizing post-acute patient assessment data, requires reports from MedPAC and the Department of Health and Human Services to make recommendations on payment prototypes based off of the PAC assessment data, and requires CMS to develop regulations to encourage the use of this data in patient discharge planning while continuing to take into account patient preferences.

About NTOCC

The National Transitions of Care Coalition is a 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to addressing a serious U.S. health care issue: filling the gaps that occur when patients leave one care setting and move to another care setting. These transitions include patients moving from primary care to specialty physicians; moving or transferring patients from the emergency department to intensive care or surgery; and when patients are discharged from the hospital to home, assisted living arrangements, or skilled nursing facilities. The U.S. health care system often fails to meet the needs of patients during these transitions because care is rushed and responsibility is fragmented, with little communication across care settings and multiple providers.

Since 2006, NTOCC’s Advisors Council of over 30 organizations has shared a common goal of improving the quality of Transitions of Care. Working in conjunction with 450 Associate Member organizations and over 3,000 individual professional subscribers, NTOCC has developed tools and resources made available to everyone in the health care industry including providers, payers, patients and consumers. NTOCC’s mission is supported by the Partners Council made up of innovative companies leading critical change in health care coordination.
