The RAI User’s Manual will not be updated for FY2021 as per CMS’ original statement regarding such an update.

The posting of the page I found late last week was only the required renewal of the PRA – Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.  In effect, the combination of the PRA Disclosure Statement and the October 2020 – For Use Effective October 1, 2020 statement tells providers that the October 2019 RAI User’s Manual is the October 2020 RAI User’s Manual.
