Does anybody know what the new regs require regarding the timing of the every 15 day Comp Updates related to reporting in IDG? i.e. the Comp Update must be completed no earlier or later than x amount of days before an IDG, or it must be completed within x amount of hours before IDG?
The reason I ask is this: Hypothetically, if an IDG meets on a Tuesday, for instance, then technically the week spans from Tues to Tues. If the office is normally closed on Sat and Sunday, then wouldn't all the patients need to be seen on Monday for Tuesday's meeting? I realize it can potentially be worked out so that about half of the patient load would only fall into any given week, unless, of course you had a change in level of care or some other non-routine event...
How do you do it where you work?

The comprehensive assessment must be completed every 15 days...same as your IDG/IDT, but theya re not the same thing. The company I am now with has their week starting on Sunday and IDG is Thursdays. One is not the same as the other. So once every two weeks the CM must do their comprehensive assessment. They must also do the comp assess whenever there is a change in condition. The changes must also be reported on the IDG (scheduled or unscheduled). Does that help any?
