Summary

As skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) roll into their first full year of the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), many facilities are still trying to understand the role that Interim Payment Assessments (IPA) will play in success PDPM reimbursement. Under the final rule, providers are only required to perform two Prospective Payment System (PPS) assessments: on day 5 and upon discharge. However, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) states that an “IPA is optional and will be completed when providers determine that the patient has undergone a clinical change that would require a new PPS assessment.” Which leads to question, are IPAs really optional? And, how and when should facilities be documenting IPAs?
