On June 30, SimpleLTC and Texas Medicaid Coalition hosted a free webinar covering upcoming Oct. 1 changes to the MDS 3.0 process, including Section GG, designed to help facilities assess the functional ability of a skilled resident at the time of admission and establish discharge goals, as well as a review of those goals at discharge.

It also included information about the New Part A Discharge assessment and other updates to the RAI Manual and MDS 3.0 coding. Our special guest speaker was Shelly Nanney, State MDS Clinical Coordinator with the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.

Topics included:

  • Section GG: Functional Ability and Goals
  • Nursing Home Part A PPS Discharge (NPE) Item Set
  • Brief overview of CMS planned changes to Sections C, J and M
