CMS releases updated RAI User’s Manual errata documents
CMS recently released two supplementary errata documents for the MDS 3.0 RAI User’s Manual, Version 1.08:
- MDS 3.0 RAI Manual (v1.08) Errata v3
- MDS 3.0 RAI Manual (v1.08) Errata v4
Neither errata document is meant to replace the other. Taken together, the two documents contain replacement pages for the RAI User’s Manual. Pages from “Errata v3” are marked with the footer “April 2012 (R2)”. Pages from “Errata v4” are marked with the footer “April 2012 (R3)”. The majority of the changes cited in each document are either corrections to typographical errors or the addition of coding clarifications.
If you purchased the revised RAI User’s Manual from HCPro (MDS 3.0 RAI User’s Manual, Version 3.5), these two errata documents can be found on the book’s Downloadable Content website, where the revised pages can be printed and added to your binder. The address for that website is provided on p. vii in your binder.
HCPro’s latest published edition contains pages from the original Errata v3; however, as the document has since been revised, you should replace the “April 2012 (R2)” pages found in your binder with those issued in the Errata v3 document located on the Downloadable Content website.
