Below are some highlights from the September 17 , 2014 CMS SNF/LTC Open Door Forum:

 · FY 2015 Transition Memo has been posted to CMS website regarding transition policy as finalized in FY 2015 SNF PPS rule related to revised COT OMRA requirements. Click here to access the transition memo.

 · MDS 3.0 RAI manual version 1.12 is now posted to CMS website

· A variety of typographical issues in the revised RAI manual were noted by callers. CMS is in the process of identifying how to address typographical issues identified in the revised RAI manual. 

· During question and answer period, several questions were raised regarding COT OMRA changes with majority of responses by CMS directing individuals posing the question to send their question via SNF Open Door Forum mailbox: SNF_LTCODF-L@cms.hhs.gov
