Medicare Fee-for-Service FAQs

Medicare Fee-for-Service FAQs

CMS recently the FAQ document on Medicare Fee-for-Service. The FAQs are available here and cover SNF, home health, hospice, physician services, durable medical equipment, and other FFS topics. The only update we could identify is related to virtual supervision of PT assistants and OT assistants. But the FAQ is chock full of oldies but goodies, like whether a COVID-19 diagnosis automatically qualifies an individual for a Part A SNF stay. Spoiler alert: It does not. Determination for Part A services is still based on the actual SNF services provided, not the diagnoses.
