DDE HIQA Deadline extended

Remember when I said that CMS was eliminating the DDE HIQA screens used for Part A eligibility 4/7/14?  Well, never mind…

CMS has just (2/10/14) announced that this deadline has been suspended.  CMS insists that they will still be terminating the use of these screens, but there is now no set date.  They will announce a date in the future, but they will provide at least 90 days’ notice.
