Earlier this month, several agencies were experiencing OASIS rejections due to ‘incorrect’ Branch IDs which proved to be an error within the new ASAP system. On January 13th, CMS released a correction to the editing of the M0016 Branch ID Number field. Although this enhancement resolved the errors for many agencies, some are still experiencing rejections due to invalid Branch ID data.
“There are inconsistencies between the Branch ID data in the state database and the Branch ID data in the national database that are causing some OASIS records to be rejected.”
While this is a CMS issue, GLMI will continue to bring you updates as they become available.
