Following the first required submission deadline in November 2016, CMS published version 2.2 of the CMS Policy Manual.  Updates included:

  • Reinforcement of the need to maintain employee ID’s when switching contract vendors to avoid issues with turnover and tenure.
  • Clarification of hire dates when staff transfer to new facilities.
  • For users who manually submit data, a conversion table to convert minutes to fractions.
  • Added clarification that corporate staff can only be reported when paid to work on site at a facility.

Of note, the continued clarification on proper methods to report hire and termination dates correctly were a sign of the challenges involved in collecting that data.
