Will it still be viable to claim for 4b interventions next year?

Will it still be viable to claim for 4b interventions next year?

If a resident has an assessed need for complex pain management 4-days per week, will the funding in 2017 cover the cost of providing the service?

Due to the change to Q11 (Medication) and other Q12 directives, an analysis of current claiming patterns shows that if existing claims were replaced like-with-like, then most existing:

  • Q12.4a’s would no longer contribute to funding, and
  • Q12.4b’s will still contribute to funding.

Below is a comparison table identifying common claiming patterns, and scenarios where the claiming of complex pain management interventions does (or doesn’t) contribute to funding:

4b W&L

From 2017 it will only be in situations where residents have an assessed need for 120-minutes of complex pain management 4-days per week that a claim for a Q12.4b can be made.

Due to this timeframe, will the amount of funding your facility receives cover the cost of the service?
