Final OASIS-E Guidance Manual Posted by CMS – Effective in Less than 3 Weeks!

New OASIS-E Resource from CMS

Last week, CMS posted the final version of the OASIS-E instrument. Yesterday, CMS posted the updated final version of the OASIS-E Guidance Manual. Both the instrument and manual are effective for OASIS assessments with a M0090 date on or after January 1st, 2023. 

What has changed from the draft to the final version of the OASIS-E Guidance Manual? 

There are numerous changes to the final manual, including some significant changes to the BIMS and PHQ-2 to 9 items.  A log of changes that have occurred from the draft to final versions of the Guidance Manual is available here. The final OASIS-E Guidance Manual is available here in the downloads section at the bottom of the page. The manual is labeled "OASIS-E Manual Final (PDF)".
