Ohio Case Mix Changes: Start Preparing Now!

April 26, Cleveland

4 CEs

October 1, 2023 brings changes to the MDS, including the retirement of Section G from the OBRA assessment item sets. States who use RUGs for their case mix methodology, including Ohio, will have decisions to make regarding changes to their case mix methodology as a result of the item set changes. Discussions have been ongoing since last fall between the Ohio Department of Medicaid and OHCA and other provider representatives to plan for this change.

This session is for MDS Coordinators, Administrators, Directors of Nursing, therapists and other embers of the IDT and will provide the latest updates on planned changes to Ohio case mix methodology along with concrete strategies to help capture case mix currently and to be prepared for the new system when it is implemented.

1. Describe the Ohio department of Medicaid plan for measuring case mix with the implementation of the new item set.
2. Articulate the timing for implementing these changes.
3. Develop at least three strategies to improve assessment of MDS items used in case mix.
