Cognitive Testing

mms

Recently the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force report found insufficient evidence to support routinely testing all older adults for cognitive impairment.  Ok.  Sounds great.  Wait a minute, that is part of the Medicare Wellness Exam.  What shall we do?  Of course we will do whatever it takes to get paid.  No cognitive “testing”, no pay.   So get your mini-mental status forms out because coding is more important than care.  Did you remember – APPLE, TABLE, PENNY?
