MDS Companion Handbook – Your expert guide to coding, training, and reimbursement under the MDS 3.0 and RAI Manual

Accurately completing the MDS 3.0 for every resident and every assessment is no small task. In addition to the day-to-day documentation demands, you have to keep an eye on getting the reimbursement your facility deserves.  And with CMS pushing for a Medicare payment structure that focuses more on value and less on volume of care, your MDS coding and quality reporting are more crucial than ever before.

To keep up with the latest MDS coding advice, as well as the most recent RAI Manual updates that impact your reimbursement and compliance, you need a trusted resource that explains in plain English exactly what you need to know to complete your MDS assessments accurately and in a timely manner. Because the RAI Manual updates aren’t always easy to understand, you’ll need expert analyses and explanations of MDS changes so that your coding and documentation requirements are clear.

The Coding Institute is pleased to bring you the MDS Companion Handbook, your expert guide to coding, training, and reimbursement under the MDS 3.0 and RAI Manual.

Here’s a sample of the key areas covered in MDS Companion Handbook :
