LeadingAge Ohio Members Not Among NF’s with Money Takebacks from Exception Reviews

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) announced that 15 nursing facilities will have financial penalties as a result of unfavorable findings during the latest round of MDS exception reviews. This outcome is a marked departure from Ohio nursing facilities’ performance on the exception reviews to-date. LeadingAge Ohio members were not among the 15 providers. 

LeadingAge Ohio provides members with assistance if they are selected for an MDS exception review, including coaching and consultation provided by Stephanie DeWees. Additionally, LeadingAge Ohio provided MDS workshops in preparation for the MDS reviews and has tip sheets for members. These tip sheets can be utilized by an organization to audit their own MDS records to ensure ongoing compliance throughout the year. 

MDS exception review resources can be found within the member resources section of the LeadingAge Ohio webpage. Please reach out to Stephanie Dewees with questions and/or to request support should your facility be selected.
