Skilled Nursing Facility Consolidated Billing
Payment for most beneficiary services in a Medicare-covered Part A Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) stay, including most services provided by entities other than the SNF, are included in a bundled prospective payment. The SNF must bill these bundled services to the MAC in a consolidated bill.
Medicare Part B may pay for:
- Outpatient services furnished to beneficiaries who are not inpatients of a SNF
- Services excluded from SNF Prospective Payment System (PPS) and SNF Consolidated Billing (CB)
- Certain “medical and other health services” furnished to beneficiaries residing in a SNF whose Part A benefits are exhausted or who are not otherwise entitled to payment under Part A
