If you are a Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) provider, you may have questions regarding the Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 assessments. SNFs must assess the clinical condition of residents by completing required Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 assessments. You must complete them for each Medicare resident receiving Part A SNF-level care for reimbursement under the SNF Prospective Payment System (PPS) in a covered Part A stay.  See the CMS website (PDF, 809 KB) for more information.
