Question: A resident was admitted on Medicare Part A on July 15, 2018. The Admission assessment combined with the PPS 5-day had an ARD of 7/22/18 and was completed and submitted 7 days later. On 7/28/18, the resident experienced a change in condition and hospice was elected the same day. Five days later, on 8/2/18, the resident’s condition improved and the family and resident revoked hospice and skilled Medicare services were restarted.

2. Is a Significant Change in Status Assessment (SCSA) required?
3. What assessment, if any, is required following Hospice revocation on 8/2/18?
