This year’s MDS 3.0 RAI User’s Manual update was packed full of changes, from a new item set (the Medicare Part A PPS Discharge Assessment), to the new section GG on the MDS (section GG). These changes are big. This session will focus on detailing the rules according to final instructions from CMS. We’ll discuss clarifications and changes from CMS on how accurately to capture items in section GG such as “usual performance”, “helper”, and when to complete the End of Medicare Part A Assessment. In addition to covering the big changes, the session will clarify the numerous miscellaneous changes to chapters 2 and 3, including MDS sections C, J, M, and others.
