Skilled-Nursing Facility Notice of Non-Coverage Revised

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued the attached MLN Matters article about the recently revised Skilled-Nursing Facility Notice of Non-coverage form. With this revision, CMS is discontinuing five skilled-nursing facility denial letters, specified in the article, and the Notice of Exclusion from Medicare Benefits. The revised form will be required effective April 30, but facilities are encouraged to begin using it as soon as practicable.
