Long-Term Care


PPS Alert for Long-Term Care, October 1, 2008

Q. I forgot to set the assessment reference date (ARD) for the 60-day Medicare-required MDS assessment for one of my residents. I didn’t realize it until day 66 of the Medicare stay. I am told that I can’t simply set it within the ARD window allowed by the regulations, which would be any day from day 50–64. What do I do? Do we have to bill the default rate for the whole payment period covered by this assessment?
