RAI Manual Update

The RAI Manual v1.10 posted on May 20, 2013 by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) omitted six sections: Chapter 3 - Section F; Chapter 3 - Section J; Chapter 3 - Section S title page; Appendix D; Appendix F title page; and Appendix H title page.  The re-posting of RAI Manual v1.10 on May 29, 2013, now includes these six sections.

In addition, two minor edits were made to the coding tips in Chapter 2 (page 49) and Chapter 3 - Section O (page 31). The footers on these two pages are marked with “(R)” and now read “May 2013 (R)”. As a result, the two related change table files were updated to reflect these changes.
CMS has now posted the full version.
