SNF VBP Incentives tool released in DataLab

A SNF VBP Incentives Tool has been released in DataLab. The tool focuses on incentives assessed by CMS as part of the Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) programs. Medicare assessed skilled nursing facility 30-day hospital readmission rates for a baseline period (CY 2015) and a performance period (CY 2017). SNFs with good performance receive an increase in payments, while SNFs with poor performance receive a decrease in payments. Tool includes data on performance and on assessed incentive.
