CMS Issues Several RAI Manual Corrections

By Ruta Kadonoff


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has made several corrections to the recently-released RAI Manual, v. 1.11, related to therapy coding and the ADL function algorithm. Changes are found in the
  1. The flowchart “ADL Self-Performance Algorithm,” which describes the algorithm for ADL function items in Chapter 3 Section G (page G-7), and the accompanying change table
  2. Coding examples in Chapter 3 Section O (page O-33)
  3. A change table page incorrectly transcribed from Chapter 3 Section O (page 3)
CMS has posted three files marked “(R)” for download as part of this errata release. Two of these files are revised and one is a new, additional file. All three files include an “(R)” at the end of the file name.
