Medicare is Covering Skilled Maintenance Services

Photo Presenter in class.

This one hour and forty minute pre-recorded workshop will review and describe the implementation of the Medicare policy covering maintenance services as skilled care, facilitated by Anthony Szczygiel, JD, UB Law Professor. This change results from the binding settlement on January 24, 2013 of Jimmo v. Sebelius, a nation-wide class action. The new policy, effective immediately, marks a critical step forward for thousands of beneficiaries nationwide. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will revise its Medicare Benefit Policy Manual and numerous other policies, guidelines and instructions to ensure that Medicare coverage is available for skilled maintenance services in the home health, nursing home and outpatient settings.
