True to their word, CMS posted an early copy of the RAI User’s Manual effective Oct. 1, 2019. In light of everything that is happening in long-term care, such as the new Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), Phase 3 Requirements of Participation, and changes to the Five-Star Quality Rating System, we welcome the manual draft so that we can all get a head start on preparing for the changes. Granted, CMS made it clear that a “final posting” may contain additional updates; however, the draft provides the nurse assessment coordinator (NAC) and the interdisciplinary team (IDT) members a few months to absorb all of the great information, guidelines, examples, and clarifications.
Join us for this 90-minute webinar and learn more about the new PPS Medicare assessments; what to do when completing the Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) for PDPM; tips for coding section GG (a huge part of PDPM); the use of the GG Decision Tree; and the new items in section I. Thanks to CMS's early release, we can hit the ground running on Oct. 1, 2019.

Review the overall changes to the RAI User’s Manual v. 1.17
Describe the changes in Chapter 2 with the removal of assessment options in A0310B and the addition of new PPS assessments
