Miami Nursing Center Residents to Lawmakers - PPS Adds Value to Our Care

Residents and caregivers from Miami Jewish Health Systems visited Rep. Carlos Trujillo's district office Wednesday to promote the message that reimbursing nursing centers through Prospective Payment System (PPS) would add VALUE the quality care they receive. 

The PPS plan is part of the state budget that lawmakers in Tallahassee will vote on to close out the 2017 legislative session. 

“We pride ourselves on the exceptional services our residents are experiencing, said Luci Loureiro, Director of Therapeutic Programs for Miami Jewish Health Systems. "Therapy is an important component to improving our residents' health outcomes, and we're excited about a system that funds our center based on the quality improvements we're making every day in our residents' care."

Florida nursing centers are currently reimbursed using a cost-based system. Miami Jewish Health Systems, the state's largest not-for-profit nursing center is among the more than 550 Florida Health Care Association members that support a Prospective Payment System, which is designed to measure and reward centers for meaningful quality advancements and provide incentives for efficient use of taxpayer dollars.
