COVID-19: SNF Benefit Period Waiver

CMS released an MLN Matters article that provides additional guidance on two of the emergency waivers related to the SNF benefit period that the agency issued for the duration the public health emergency (PHE).  The MLN Matters article provides additional guidance on the emergency waivers that waived the 3-day qualifying hospital stay (QHS), as well as benefit period requirements under §1812(f) of the Social Security Act which help restore SNF coverage that beneficiaries affected by the emergency would be entitled to under normal circumstances
