MDS 3.0 RAI User's Manual (V 1.11)

RAI Manual v.1.12 has been released by CMS. We will update our online RAI Manual on Oct. 1 when new changes must be implemented in daily practice.

Updated September 25, 2013

This page contains the current MDS 3.0 RAI Manual v1.11, effective October 1, 2013. This version of the MDS 3.0 RAI Manual incorporates clarifications to existing coding and transmission policy, integrates previously published Questions and Answers (Q & As) into the appropriate sections and addresses requested clarifications and scenarios concerning complex areas.

The manual is also maintained on the CMS website here.

Updated May 12, 2014:

The April update of Appendix B to the RAI Manual contains changes to the list of state RAI coordinators, MDS automation coordinators, RAI panel members, and regional office contacts.

Sometimes you need it all, and sometimes just a little. Use the links at the top of the list to download the MDS 3.0 RAI User's Manual v1.11 (two ZIP files and one PDF) or use the dropdown list to find the exact chapter, appendix, or change-table you need to replace.
