AHCA Accelerated & Advance Payments FAQs
Last Updated: April 27, 2020
Below is an updated version of the AHCA Medicare Accelerated and Advance Payment FAQs to supplement the April 26 CMS announcement that it is reevaluating the amounts that will be paid under its Accelerated Payment Program to Part A facility-based providers (including SNF) and suspending its Advance Payment Program to Part B suppliers effective immediately.
Specifically impacting SNFs, beginning on April 26, 2020 CMS will be reevaluating all pending and new applications for Accelerated Payments submitted by SNFs and other facility-based providers in light of the $175 billion recently appropriated for health care provider relief payments. Significant additional funding will continue to be available to healthcare providers through these programs. For more information on the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund and how to apply can be found here.
