(My favorite state…Sorry other 49)
We are approaching that time of year again, the July Census Data Collection Period for Medicaid reimbursement.
The midnight census collection date is Wednesday, July 30th, rain or shine. Facility administration, MDS Coordinators and therapy staff should all be aware of the date.
A copy of the Dear Administrator Letter that was sent to each facility in November of 2013 outlining the dates is below for your reference with the details needed for your facility to maintain compliance.
The facility “Medicaid-Only” case mix index score that is calculated based on this collection date will be used to set facility Medicaid payment for January 2015.
If your facility has any questions regarding the process, don’t hesitate to contact us.
