Q: Regarding tube feeding, I have a resident who resides in a SNF, she receives only flushes, no nutrition via PEG tube. She was skilled for a tube in the past (2013), but has not received any nutrition for a year;
does she qualify for another benefit period? She is still receiving flushes with occasional feeding.
