OMRA - Other Medicare Required Assessment
Usually done 8-10 days after a Medicare A covered resident is discharged from all skilled Rehab (PT/OT) services yet still qualified to continue Medicare coverage for a skilled nursing need until Medicare benefit days are exhausted.
In some instances, OMRA can also be used in conjunction with an SCSA (Significant Change in Status Assm't) if a higher RUGs (CMI) is warranted.
