Program Title: Achieving MDS Data Accuracy for Accurate PDPM Payments


Many facilities are realizing that their Part A Medicare payment does not reflect the cost of care. Audits reveal that MDS coding is not complete or accurate – resulting in significant payment loss. COVID case management and documentation is a very important part of proper payment. This interactive session will review the data formulation process for the MDS items that impact the payment rate calculation. Full discussion of the coding guidelines, definitions, and timelines for data collection will be included. Documentation formats for reproducible data in the medical record will be reviewed. Specific diagnostic coding accuracy will be discussed including COVID diagnostic codes.  The data formulation policy development will also be discussed. A must-do session for administrators, clinical leadership, finance and MDS managers. Bring your team for practical specific information with examples of documentation and audit formats.
