IPA and restorative

Posted

Experts,

Can adding 6 days of restorative for a Med A patient affect an IPA? Not sure if it will increase reimbursement or at least stay on the same HIPPS payment without the 2% reduction.

Thank you!

Not worth it. 'may even lower your 5day rate. There's a PDPM Calculator app for Android and iOS which can show you the rate based on your clinical conditions.

Ooooh! Talino, I've said this before, but I do so like to read your postings. So informative.

Esp, for someone who didn't particularly care for MDS.
