Dan Ciolek
On June 26, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted a notice offering a web-based training course on how to properly code of Section GG of the Minimum Data Set (MDS) assessment. Accurate reporting of Section GG Self-Care and Mobility items is critically important for provider success in implementing the new Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System (SNF PPS) Patient Driven Payment Model, as well as the SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP). This 45-minute course is intended for providers in the following care settings: Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), and Home Health Agencies (HHAs); and is designed to be used on demand anywhere you can access a browser. The course is divided into the following four lessons and includes interactive exercises that allow you to test your knowledge in real life scenarios:
  • Lesson 1: Importance of Section GG for Post-Acute Care
  • Lesson 2: Section GG Assessment and Coding Principles
  • Lesson 3: Coding GG0130.Self-Care Items
  • Lesson 4: Coding GG0170.Mobility Items
SNF Providers may find this timely training resource useful for PDPM transition training of nurses, certified nursing assistants, and therapists. Click here to access the training.
If you have technical questions or feedback regarding the training, please email the PAC Training mailbox. Content-related questions should be submitted to the Quality Reporting Program Help Desk for your care setting.
