Resources: Section G

Posted by Admin Posted on June 28 2023

Section G

CMS announced last fall section G’s removal from the comprehensive OBRA item set starting October 1, 2023. The removal of this key section from the Minimum Data Set (MDS) will impact the future of nursing home reimbursements by states. Every state is evaluating different methods.

During the Kentucky quarterly meeting of the Nursing Facility Technical Advisory Committee, Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) was asked about Section G going away on 10/1. DMS is evaluating the possibilities and researching what other states are going to implement. DMS stated their “goal” is to not have SNFs completing Optional State Assessments (OSA).

We will keep you informed of any updates.
