Working with you, we will focus on the key drivers of MDS-based reimbursement, from ADLs, RUGs and therapy minutes, to the esoteric matters of compliance and RAC. Even though everyone operates under the same rules and regulations, there are significant differences and opportunities in every facility.

  • Skilling Criteria via Medicare Guidelines
