Understanding the New Section GG OASIS-D Items
Posted on Friday, March 8, 2019 6:25 PM
CMS has provided a functional coding fact sheet to clarify that the response codes for the OASIS M1800 series function items, and the Section GG function items are not intended to be duplicative, or ‘match’. There are differences between items that have the same or similar names, so coding may be different. Each OASIS item should be considered individually and coded based on guidance specific to that item.
CMS has also posted a tool to help agencies to complete the GG items for self-care and mobility activities.
