CMS has updated the Appendix B list of State RAI Coordinators, RAI Coordinator Panel Members, MDS Automation Coordinators and Regional Office Contacts.  The list is actually pre-dated for August 29, 2019.

For the first time ever, CMS has provided a separate Change List for Appendix B to clearly show what has changed in specific offices included on the Appendix B list.  Makes life easier for us when we can identify what’s changed doesn’t it.

In case you’re wondering, the final version of the October 2019 RAI User’s Manual has not yet been posted.  If you’re counting down the days until October 1st for PDPM and MDS 3.0 v1.17.1, today marks 34 days with the clock ticking.
