Minnesota Case Mix Review Program
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. DHS assigns a value to each classification, which they use to calculate the daily rate of payment for private pay and Medicaid stays.
