MDS Submission Clarification

Lisa Volk Jackie Pappalardi and Carl Pucci in Clinical & Quality, Finance & Reimbursement

NYSHFA contacted DOH to clarify members concerns regarding the one-week timeframe (11/19 – 11/27/20) to review census data. This period is only for providers to enter the system and verify their in-house resident status during the collection period. Providers will have the normal 30-day window (12/2 – 12/31/20) to review, correct, and edit the census data, resident coding, payor source, etc. 

The January 2020 census submission timeline, as published, is necessary to ensure the 7/1/20 rates are issued prior to the State’s fiscal year end (3/31/21). 

The DAL is attached with further details.
