ABSTRACT
The article discusses a court case where the U.S. District Court, District of Vermont approved a settlement agreement which states that the continuation of skilled care therapy services depends on a beneficiary's need for skilled care. The settlement required the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to revise its manuals and remove implications that skilled care depends on a patient's improvement. The settlement affirmed what the law required Medicare to provide in benefits.
