Injury was presented as work related even though the resident has MCR, and the claims adjuster preauth'd his SNF stay. I went ahead and set day 8 (2/20) for ARD. OBRA Eval completed and submitted 2/26 (yesterday- day 14) with HIPPS code -60. This morning, Workers Comp is denying the injury is work related and denying the claim in its entirety. Today is day 15, so if I modify it and resubmit it as PPS, I will now have to use todays date as the ARD and it will be considered late...correct?

- Feb 27 by TalinoThere is no need to make a correction. You meet the "exception" to the rule of Missed Assessment (see RAI p 6-54)
Use the RUG category generated by the OBRA Adm MDS using the same HIPPS code 60 to bill for days 1 - 14.
Do the 14-day no later than 3/3.
