Getting MDS Section D Right for PDPM Success!

Screening for depression has been an important part of the MDS under RUGS, and it will continue to be important under PDPM (Patient Driven Payment Method) Part A Reimbursement for Skilled Nursing Facilities as of October 1, 2019. 

In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of filling out Section D correctly and accurately, and the impact it has on both quality measures and reimbursement
