Delayed Implementation of Updated MDS

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is delaying the Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 v1.18.1 release, which had been scheduled for Oct. 1, 2020, in response to stakeholder concerns. 

In December 2019, CMS posted a draft of the MDS 3.0 item set v1.18.0 and received feedback from stakeholders which included concerns regarding the proposed changes to the MDS 3.0 item sets and more specifically the removal of the Section G items from OBRA assessments.

The MDS changes CMS planned for Oct. 1, 2020 will now be delayed while CMS engages in continued discussions with stakeholders. Comments or questions can be submitted to:
