The SCIC utility will automatically
determine if including or ignoring a specific SCIC would
work in your agency's best financial interest. The
determination to include or exclude a SCIC will happen during
billing to allow enough time for all the relevant SCICs
and Visits to be posted. TimeTrack®
will check if adding up the SCICs would yield a higher payment
compared to ignoring the SCIC in its entirety or portion
of it. SCIC that will pay you less (patient improved)
will always be recognized and included.
Patient admitted on 10/02/2000 with
grouper C1F0S0 for a total amount of $2,000.00. First
Billable visit is 10/03/2000. RAP amount is $1,200.00.
Patient went into the hospital. Last billable visit
before hospitalization is 10/12/2000 (first grouper span
of days is 10). Patient returned to agency's care
on 10/15/2000 with a new grouper (SCIC) C2F0S0 for a total
amount of $2,500.00. Patient went into the hospital
again. Last billable visit before second hospitalization
is 10/24/2000 (second grouper span of days is 10).
Patient returned to agency's care on 10/26/2000 with another
new grouper (SCIC) C2F2S0 for a total amount of $3000.00.
Patient remained in agency's care until 10/30/2000 and got
discharged (third grouper span of days is 5). The
above has 3 possible computations:
1. Agency can recognize the 2 SCICs.
The total for the episode will be ($333.33+$416.67+$250.00
2. Agency can recognize only the
first SCIC and ignore the second SCIC. The total for
the episode will be ($333.33+$625.00 = $958.33)
3. Agency can ignore the two SCIC's.
The total for the episode will be $2,000.00.
The new SCIC utility will automatically
