Q: When adding an assessment for a Medicare HMO resident, is A0310B coded as 99, Not PPS assessment, or 01, 5-Day Scheduled Assessment? If I use 99, I can only add an entry or discharge MDS, depending on my answers to the other questions. Also, would A0410 be coded as 1, Neither Federal nor State required submission, as this is not for Medicare?
