CMS Posts OASIS Q&As: 5 NEW, 93 REVISED, 133 RETIRED

CMS has posted the updated Quarterly OASIS Q&As with 5 new questions. These are available in the OASIS Quarterly Q&As section of the CMS QTSO webpage, https://qtso.cms.gov/providers/home-health-agency-hha-providers/reference-manuals .

CMS also posted the updated OASIS Static Q&As. Categories 1, 2, 3 & 4 of the OASIS Q&As have been updated to reflect the OASIS-D item set and are now available on the QTSO Home Health Agency (HHA) Providers page under References & Manuals https://qtso.cms.gov/providers/home-health-agency-hha-providers/reference-manuals 

The update involved removing references to OASIS items that will not be included in OASIS-D. Q&As related to the one clinician convention/collaboration and to the 2018 Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoP) change involving the physician-ordered Resumption of Care were also revised. Ninety-three Q&As were revised, and 133 Q&As were retired as a result of this update.

Additional Static Q&A updates and edits are expected in 2019.
