All correspondence, documents and information for home health agencies subject to Outcome Assessment Information Set (OASIS) requirements are now being distributed via the OASIS Submission Bulletins Page.
Florida home health agencies that are Medicare-certified or Medicaid-enrolled are required to electronically transmit to the state database in accordance with the federal reporting regulation (effective July 19, 1999). Florida HHAs should be using CMS-issued branch identifiers in M0016 instead of the prior Florida requirement to enter the state license number (without the preceding 'HHA' designation).
The OASIS Helpdesk has an e-mail alert system to notify registered providers or interested parties of "late-breaking" OASIS information. Complete as much information using the registration link above and check OASIS for Provider Type and Opt-In to receive emails or Opt-Out for if you wish to stop receiving emails:Sign Up for OASIS Alerts
