The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released new job aids for post-acute care (PAC) providers to aid in the assessment and coding of GG0130. Self-Care Items. T

Econometrica developed these aids under contract with CMS to “provide clinically relevant information to assist providers in understanding specific guidelines and clinical considerations that should be applied to coding GG0130. Self-Care items,” according to a CMS release.

“These job aids are a product of our collaboration with PAC providers to ensure they have resources that are useful and readily available while assessing patients,” said Kristie McNealy, Director of Health for Econometrica.

The training materials apply to four PAC settings: Home Health Agencies, Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities, Long-Term Care Hospitals, and Skilled Nursing Facilities.
