OASIS expired? No!

The OASIS-C instrument has not expired even though the form contains a July 31, 2012, expiration date. The renewal for the OASIS-C instrument is currently at the Office of Management and Budget. An OASIS-C with a new expiration date will be released once cleared through the renewal process.

We expect M1012 (Procedures) to be deleted as well as changes to the coding data items to allow for ICD-10-CM codes. It is puzzling how CMS intends to re-word the M1020/M1022 item when the codes are no longer V and E codes. Perhaps they will delay that change like they delayed ICD-10!
