RUGs are used in SNF and in the Veterans Administration to determine reimbursement for services, or prospective payment services (PPS). The amount is determined by the amount and intensity of services needed by the resident. In the SNF, data from the MDS is used to determine the RUG category, and thus, the reimbursement on a daily rate.
