Published

Experts,

Not sure which assessment to open for this scenario.

Patient entry - United commercial as primary - 4/25

went on hospice - 4/30

Expired - 5/1

Do I still need admission?

Thank you!

The Adm MDS is not required. Depending on what the payor requires, you may need to complete a 5-day (not submitted) to obtain the HIPPS code to bill.
