Important Update re: Implementation of Hospice Item Set (HIS) V3.00 Specifications

Dec 31, 2020

On January 1, 2021, CMS will move forward with the implementation of V3.00 of the HIS data submission specifications. The HIS Manual V3.00 is not yet final and is still pending approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The implementation of the HIS V3.00 specifications will prevent hospice providers from encountering any fatal errors/ rejected records whether submitting HIS records with or without section O. Both HIS V2.00 or V3.00 records will be accepted by the ASAP system. Please monitor the HQRP Spotlight and Announcement page for additional updates.
