Medicare Basic Training Part 5: Skilled Nursing Requirements On-Demand Workshop

Back to Package

SNF staff have the ultimate responsibility of determining skilled Medicare Part A coverage at the time of the delivery of care. No outside entity reviews the records and makes this decision during a beneficiary’s stay. SNF staff must understand what the Medicare Administrative Contractor will be looking for in the documentation to support why those skilled services were provided. Following Medicare Basic Training Part 5: Skilled Nursing Requirements, you will be able to recognize the requirements that qualify as skilled nursing care under Medicare Part A, as well as to recognize the difference between direct and indirect skilled nursing services.
