  • CMS to Discuss Jimmo Settlement in Forum This Week

    December 04, 2013
    By Margaret Schmidt CMS, Jimmo vs. Sebelius

    The Jimmocase is on the agenda for this Thursday’s SNF/Long Term Care Open Door Forum. RehabCare has been closely following the Jimmo vs. Sebelius settlement, which this year established the maintenance standard for Medicare coverage. Prior to the Jimmo case, Medicare only covered skilled care if it improved (rather than maintained) a patient’s condition. CMS is set to provide an update on the settlement with stakeholders and providers this week. Stay tuned to RehabCare Advantage to learn if Jimmo is addressed in the upcoming forum.
