Excerpt:

Is gathering all the information about ancillary services for Part A residents really necessary? Or is it just busy work?

Ancillary charges, including those from outside vendors, need to be included on the skilled nursing facility (SNF) Part A UB-04 for a number of reasons. In this article, we'll review the requirements to do so, then we'll explore ways to make the process smoother.

Under consolidated billing for SNFs, the Medicare PPS per diem is expected to cover the costs of all the care for the resident, with only a few specific excluded items. And the current Conditions of Participation for SNFs expect that all services provided to the SNF resident are the responsibility of the SNF.
