MNHIMA-WHIMA | Prior Authorization/Recalculation Requests for SNF Medicare Advantage Stays

It has been found that almost 100% of the prior authorization levels given by the Medicare Advantage Plans do not match the PDPM score calculated by the facility MDS.

Overview:

It has been found that almost 100% of the prior authorization levels given by the Medicare Advantage Plans do not match the PDPM score calculated by the facility MDS. In many cases the difference is $200-$500 per day in reimbursement. NaviHealth is the approved vendor who authorizes SNF stays for Humana and Security Health Plan. In this session we will discuss the request for recalculation process and the financial ramifications.

  • Identify the elements used by NaviHealth used to calculate a PDPM score.
  • Describe the request for recalculation process versus the request for admitting diagnosis change
  • List clinical documentation useful to the recalculation request.
  • Define “transition” as it relates to NaviHealth authorizations
