New Home Health Agencies
As of January 1, 2020 as a result of the migration of HHA to iQIES, there are changes to the process in which HHAs submit test submissions prior to receiving their CMS Certification Number (CCN).
In order for a licensed Home Health Agency (HHA) to become certified to provide services to Medicare beneficiaries, the agency must demonstrate a successful electronic test transmission of the OASIS assessment data to the state repository. Below are steps the HHA will need to follow to complete the test transmission of the OASIS assessment to the state agency:
- Contact the HHA survey director at 405-271-6576 to ensure your facility is eligible to submit a test transmission of OASIS assessment data to the state. Obtain a computer that meets minimum technical specifications located at: https://qtso.cms.gov/reference-and-manuals/minimum-system-requirements-home-health-agencies-hospice-providers-long-term
- Contact the QIES help desk at 405-271-5278 for instructions on completing your test transmission.
