Roster Verification Deadline Extended

Late last week, the Department of Health (DOH) notified nursing home providers that they have extended the deadline by which homes need to “set the match” as they review Minimum Data Set (MDS) data that will be used to adjust January 2020 Medicaid rate acuity adjustments. The Department indicated that a number of providers are awaiting DOH action on correction requests, including instances where the system is selecting an Assessment Reference Date (ARD) later than July 31st for residents who are not new admissions. We recommend that members review their roster match and notify DOH if they identify such occurrences. DOH continues to work through these and other corrections.

The DOH slides that describe the new process are available here. Providers who require DOH intervention to make corrections should email MDSBRHCR@health.ny.gov, making certain to use secure transfer if sending any resident-identifying information. If your organization is encountering difficulty in resolving roster issues, please let us know.
