Nursing Home Care - Resource

Section GG has been a part of the Minimum Data Set (MDS) for some time, but its role in skilled nursing facility (SNF) care planning and reimbursement becomes critical under the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) taking effect on October 1, 2019. Under PDPM, Section GG becomes essential to compute each patient’s clinical classification and SNF payment.

It takes a team to accurately code the MDS. Gather your team of nurses, certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and therapy personnel and view this Telligen webinar recorded in July 2019 with Michael J. Gorman, MA, OTR and Tracy Cavanaugh, RN, to learn:

  • The components of Section GG
  • Section GG scoring methodology
  • The roles of SNF team members in compiling Section GG information.
