16 Countdown CMS Transition Plan for your Medicare Part A residents Transition is all about PPS – Medicare Part A stay Transition does NOT apply to OBRA Transition applies to SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER – MDS 2.0 FOR SEPTEMBER AND MDS 3.0 FOR OCTOBER – For Part A stays beginning prior to Sept 30 th that continue into October Presumption of Coverage continues ARD payment schedules the same Default payment will remain in effect Has 52 upper RUG groups During the transition the ARDs are SET ! Grace days are NOT to be used until December

17 Countdown CMS Transition Plan for your Medicare Part A residents Providers must complete all OBRA required assessments according to OBRA schedule The transition does not apply – When payment ends or sooner – SNF PPS payment for assessment ends – When payment begins or later – Medicare care stay begins or later – SNF PPS payment for assessment begins

18 Countdown CMS Transition Plan for your Medicare Part A residents Default Option: When a residents Part A stay ends 10-1 to 10-4, you may opt for default payment by not completing the applicable MDS 3.0 PPS assessment (for the October payment days) Option #1 no substitution May opt to complete MDS 2.0 and MDS 3.0 same type, to cover a single payment period MDS 2.0 in Sept. and MDS 3.0 in Oct. All covered days will have a RUG Safest but may be the most time consuming If resident remains skilled after that payment period, you would then complete the next required MDS 3.0

19 Countdown CMS Transition Plan for your Medicare Part A residents Option #2 substitute the MDS 3.0 for MDS 3.0 Similar to #1 in that you would complete an MDS 2.0 Unlike #1 in that you do not complete the same-type of MDS 3.0 but you do the next one MDS 2.0 covers RUG-III in Sept. and MDS 3.0 covers applicable Oct. RUG-IV payment days RISKY – you are skipping a MDS 3.0 of the same

20 Countdown CMS Transition Plan for your Medicare Part A residents Option #3 substitute the MDS 3.0 for MDS 2.0 May opt to substitute MDS 3.0 for same type MDS 2.0 You will not complete an MDS 2.0 for payment that spans both Sept. and Oct. You are completing the required MDS 3.0 for that payment period The MDS 3.0 will generate RUG-III to pay for days in Sept. and a RUG-IV to pay for days in October If resident remains skilled – complete the subsequent MDS 3.0 to cover remaining Oct. days Carries the Risks of both Option #1 and #2

21 Countdown Return to the Community Section Q RAI Manual Chapter 3, Section Q-1 through Q-16 Resident asked directly about whether they would like to speak to someone about the possibility of returning to the community Yes response – Local Contact Agency SNF has 10 business days to make contact the LCA! 3 days by phone; and within 10 days for on-site visit if needed Provide timely information about their choices, services, etc Collaborate with the NF to organize the transition
