DOH Extends 2016 Census Data Submission

in Finance & Reimbursement

DOH has extended the 2016-1 Collection period for matched census data to May 6, 2016. Facilities are urged to send questions and concerns to the PRImail@health.ny.gov address.

Below is the DOH notification:

As of close of business 04/28/2016 approximately 115 nursing facilities had not successfully uploaded and matched their census data to the matching database. The Resident Assessment Unit is working through all phone calls and emails to assist facilities in the upload. We realize that the process for the upload was delayed on the outset due to an access issue, therefore the deadline for uploading census data will be extended. The deadline to submit and match census data has been extended to:

MAY 6, 2016.

Due to the volume of calls being received we ask that facilities continue to use the PRIMail@health.ny.gov address for all questions and concerns. This allows the most people in the unit to work on issues.

Thank you.
