  • With the implementation of the OASIS ASAP system, Home Health Agencies will no longer submit OASIS assessment data to CMS via their state databases.
  • In order to transition data from the state databases to ASAP, the OASIS submission system will shut down permanently at 6:00 p.m. ET on December 26, 2014. The OASIS ASAP system will be available at 12:00 a.m. ET on January 1, 2015.


  • An updated home health payment grouper has been provided to accommodate assessments submitted October 1, 2014 and later using OASIS-C and ICD-9-CM codes;
  • An updated home health payment grouper will be provided to accommodate assessments submitted January 1, 2015 and later using OASIS-C1 and ICD-9-CM codes.
