Videos Demonstrate Impact of DP/SNF Rate Cut

CHA has produced several videos featuring member distinct-part skilled-nursing facilities (DP/SNFs) and the impact of pending cuts to reimbursement rates. Featuring patients and families — as well as employees, physicians and others — the videos were developed to illustrate the real-life impact of the cuts, which will lead to reimbursement reductions of 25 percent or more. 

CHA-sponsored AB 900 (Alejo, D-Salinas) would rescind the cuts, which were enacted by AB 97 in 2011 but have been delayed due to legal challenges brought by CHA and others. The videos may be accessed on CHA’s public advocacy website, Caring is our Calling, at
