MDH Implementing Assessment Changes from Special Session
On July 7, 2021 by Jeff Bostic
Legislation approved during the special session that wrapped up last week made a couple of changes to resident assessment practices that care center members know. The first is the implementation of the requirement for a significant change assessment after therapy services end or after the completion of a period of required isolation for an infection. Those changes are effective Aug. 1.
The Minnesota Department of Health is also implementing a new reconsideration process for cases where an assessment is changed on audit and the provider disputes the change. This document describes these changes in more detail.
