In addition to the COVID battle we continue to fight every day, we have been keeping an eye on a proposed Medicare rule set to go into effect on January 1 that will impact On With Life's ability to provide services. The federal government is moving to finalize changes to the Medicare payment fee schedule that would cut outpatient therapy and some skilled nursing provider reimbursement rates by up to 10%! This type of cut to our Outpatient program and other services, especially given the pandemic, would be devastating. And while this only initially affects Medicare payments, these rate changes will likely be followed by other payers.
