Billing Alert for Long-Term Care

With the October 1, 2019 go-live date for the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) just months away, providers are anxious to learn of any updates or clarifications CMS will make prior to the new model taking effect. As such, many providers were relieved when CMS released the mid-year draft of the MDS 3.0 Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) Manual v1.17 on May 20.

This book with downloadable tools helps you navigate recent changes to the RAI and includes more than 100 customizable care plan templates, as well as the most up-to-date care area assessment (CAA) worksheets from CMS. With many updated regulations already in effect, this timely book covers Section GG, discharge planning, QAPI, person-centered care, and survey changes, as well as the changes resulting from the ICD-10 transition.
