    TOPIC

    CAAs: Why You Need to Care About Care Areas Assessments

    Join us to review not just the CAAs as it relates to the RAI process, but also to have a real discussion on why CAAs are important and often forgotten. Let’s explore what it takes to be a successful CAA writer and when we need to go beyond the CAAs for resident care. We will discuss the relationship between CAAs, RAI and regulatory compliance, but most importantly how this improves the quality of life for our residents.

    The IPA, Making It Matter

    Program description This webinar presentation will review the reasons why an IPA should be considered during Medicare coverage to increase reimbursement.  Very few IPAs have been completed since the onset of PDPM on 10/1/19.  The complexity of the PDPM system causes the Medicare team to be unsure of which changes would result in increased payment.  This webinar will assist the Medicare A teams to understand which PDPM components present the highest opportunity for improved reimbursement.  Discussion will include which high ticket items should cause the MDS team to immediately consider completing an IPA.  Because the nursing payment items seldom impacted payment in the RUGs IV system, the Medicare team often has not been aware of the payment items and their effect on reimbursement.  This webinar will focus on the nursing and NPA components of PDPM, because they provide the best opportunity for increased reimbursement.

     Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this session, the attendee will be able to:

    1. State 2 nursing services that have the greatest impact on the nursing component of PDPM.
    2. Report which 2 of the PDPM components have the biggest opportunities to increase reimbursement.
    3. State when the IPA begins affecting the Medicare payment and how long the IPA will continue to pay during Medicare coverage
