Surviving RCS-1: New Medicare Payment Model Coming. Are You Ready?

Resident Classification System, Version 1 (RCS-1) – a new reimbursement model suggested by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) – is not just a revision of the current Resource Utilization Group (RUG) system, it’s a complete overhaul of the payment model SNFs have been subject to since 1998.
