Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Prospective Payment System (PPS) RUG Rates

Reimbursement and Remittances

1. How can I obtain a copy of my SNF or Swing Bed PPS Resource Utilization Group Rates?
If Microsoft Excel 5.0 or higher is installed on your PC, and your Swing Bed or SNF is reimbursed at 100% of the federal rate, you can now calculate your facility's SNF and/or Swing Bed PPS RUG rates. Simply click on the desired period below and then select your facility's county or MSA area from the drop-down box.
The dates listed below relate to the rates applicable to inpatient SNF PPS services provided on or after that date, and also to Swing Bed PPS services on or after 07/01/2002.
Important: ***Be sure to enable macros/content in Microsoft Excel***
This will appear as a yellow ribbon at the top of Microsoft Excel. This spreadsheet relies on these macros.
