Indiana Announces RUGs IV Trainings
As previously reported, Indiana Medicaid is transitioning the NF rate system from RUGs III to RUGs IV with an expected effective date of July 1, 2015. While the details on which RUGs IV Grouper is being used and how the State intends to pay for the transition are still up in the air, Indiana Medicaid’s contractor, Myers & Stauffer, has announced 7 trainings around the state beginning in mid-April to discuss the chosen RUGs IV Grouper, draft Supportive Documentation Guidelines, draft Time-Weighted Guidelines, Case Mix Documentation Review Protocol, and an update on e450B.
