PPS or OBRA???

  1. 0 Mr X admitted to SNF post MVC for rehab. He has Medicare, but Admission Coordinator admitted him to SNF with only 2 midnights in acute care, so he is now a no-bill. (Glad I'm not her) Should MDS eval be submitted as OBRA, or follow PPS 5-14-30 day schedule and answer A2400A "no"? Never had this happen before, so this scenario is new.

    Since resident did not meet the technical requirements for Med A coverage, there is no need to do PPS assm'ts. Follow only the OBRA sched.

    You should be able to bill Med B for the therapies.
