CMS Posts Revised OASIS-D/OASIS-D1 Instruments

Posted on Friday, April 12, 2019 12:08 AM

This week, CMS posted revised OASIS-D instruments that become effective January 1, 2020.  Changes include the addition of two existing items to the Follow-Up assessment instrument and change from required to optional data collection at certain time points for 23 items. No changes to the other time point versions of the instrument are required (Start of Care, Resumption of Care, Transfer, Discharge, Death at Home). These changes are described in detail in an OASIS D-1 Update Memorandum and summarized below.

Two existing items are added to the Follow-Up time point for data collection. HHAs must collect data on these items at Follow-Up, in addition to all other required time points. Any OASIS Follow-Up assessment with an M0090 Date Assessment Completed of January 1, 2020 or later should use the revised OASIS-D1 Follow-Up assessment.

  • M1033 Risk for Hospitalization
  • M1800 Grooming

Data collection at certain time points for 23 existing OASIS items is optional. For OASIS assessments with an M0090 Date Assessment Completed of January 1, 2020 or later, HHAs may enter an equal sign (=) for these items, at the specified time points only. This is a new valid response for these items, at these time points; the items themselves are unchanged.
