CMS Issues Proposed Revisions to Minimum Data Set

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has proposed revisions, attached, to the Minimum Data Set, the data collection and reporting tool used in skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs). The revisions reflect the provisions of the recently released proposed rule for the SNF prospective payment system, and reflect changes and additions required by the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (IMPACT Act). Additional information and a summary of the proposed rule are available on the CHA website.
