Featured member resource: The preadmission checklist
The Medicare meeting is a staple of a facility’s ability to coordinate care and capture reimbursement for their Medicare beneficiaries. The frequency with which this meeting occurs may depend on your Medicare census and the effectiveness of your meetings. In order for collaboration to be successful, it is considered best practice to have several meetings to regularly discuss residents’ care plans and preferred outcomes prior to billing a Medicare claim. These meetings may include preadmission daily reviews to discuss any resident who may be admitted to the facility. A preadmission checklist can help a facility prepare for the new resident and also begin discussions regarding that resident’s discharge plans. Download our sample checklist.
