Jimmo Improvement Standard Checklist

Does a nursing home resident have to improve in order for Medicare to pay?

No!  "Medicare coverage “does not turn on the presence or absence of a beneficiary’s potential for improvement, but rather on the beneficiary’s need for skilled care. Skilled care may be necessary to improve a patient’s condition, to maintain a patient’s current condition, or to prevent or slow further deterioration of the patient’s condition."   Please click below for the Improvement Standard checklist.
