What is Case Mix?
Minnesota Case Mix is a system that classifies residents into distinct groups, called Resource Utilization Groups (RUGS), based on the resident's condition and the care the resident receives. These groups determine the daily rate the facility charges for the resident's care. A value is assigned to each classification, which is then used to calculate the daily rate of payment. The following is a list of fact sheets available related to Minnesota Case Mix Classification.
The fact sheets are designed around individual topics and RUG categories and can be provided individually or as a package of several based on the needs of individual resident. As an example a new admission with a case mix classification of SE2 might be provided with a package of fact sheets that include: "What is Case Mix?", "Who to call for Case Mix Information?", "Case Mix Questions and Answers, Requesting a Reconsideration", "What is Extensive Services?" and "What is an ADL Score?". Another example would be a long time resident whose case mix classification changed from a PA1 to CA1 due to increased physician visits and orders changes might be provided with the fact sheets "What is Clinically Complex?" and "Requesting a Reconsideration?".
Residents, resident representatives and families may be directed to the fact sheets on this page.
