CASPER Guides for PBJ Reports Updated

CMS updated both the CASPER Reporting User’s Guide for PBJ Providers and MDS Providers this week.

When you open this hyperlink, this is what you’ll see:


Click on the MDS Providers field (or + sign) to see these contents:


The cover has been updated because Section 12 – Payroll Based Journal (PBJ) Reports has been updated.

Click on the PBJ Providers field (or + sign) to view:


Again, you’ll see the updated cover because Section 12 in this manual has been updated – also PBJ Reports.

If you’ve had your coffee this morning, you’ll note that the MDS Providers Manual states this is v1.11 of the PBJ Report while the PBJ Providers Manual states this manual has v1.10.  Both manuals have v1.11 so the v1.10 is actually a typo.  (You may have also found the lack of a right paren at the end of the Section 13 posting in the MDS Providers manual contents as well as the report itself – in both manuals – says 3/2020 but who’s counting.  Maybe I should have less coffee!)
