Jimmo v. Sebelius Information

On January 24, 2013, the U.S District Court for the District of Vermont approved a settlement agreement in the case of Jimmo v. Sebelius. The settlement clarifies skilled care delivery for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), home health (HH), inpatient rehabilitation (IRFs), and outpatient therapy (OPT) benefits. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has instructed Medicare insurers like Meridian Health Plan to convey this information to our providers to ensure that services are provided and coverage determinations are adjudicated accurately and appropriately in accordance with associated policy.
