Every home health clinician likes caring a lot.
But Medicare says what home health should do and do not!
A Medicare gift for this holiday season?
OASIS-C2! No one quite knows the reason.
Were Medicare workers’ shoes all way too tight?
Perhaps the web master felt Grinchy that night.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
Was the hope website holiday views would be small.
But whatever the reason, Grinchiness or web views,
The day before Christmas Eve, here came the news.
OASIS-C2, the CMS site reveals,
Is coming right on OASIS-C1/ICD-10's heels.
One day before Christmas Eve CMS did give
Notice that OASIS-C1 will not live.
OASIS-C2! And Medicare made it clear
Home health must implement it in one year.
We can growl, with our gloved fingers nervously drumming.
But January 2017, OASIS-C2 is still coming!
And with all the other stuff piled on our plate,
Plus holiday parties and candy we ate,
Your computer was dark and the tree glowed instead
Of you working and working, since you’d planned ahead.
So if your mouth just hung open a minute or two,
Thinking, “Right after ICD-10, now OASIS-C2?”
Don’t worry. I will help you figure it out.
My web class is free, pointing differences out
Between OASIS-C1/ICD-10 and
OASIS-C2, via cell or broadband.
