Important Information about how to access State Case Mix Review Reports after October 1, 2013

Effective October 1, 2013 the access to the Minnesota Case Mix Classification Notices and Case Mix Validation Reports will be on the CMS MDS System Welcome page. Click on the link titled “MDS State Reports” to access your facility’s Case Mix Classification Notices, Checklists, and Case Mix Validation Reports. This is necessary because as of October 1, 2013 the MDS 2.0 submission page will be discontinued by CMS.

Please see the most recent version of the Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 Provider User’s Guide (PDF) updated 9/2013 on the QTSO website. Page 3-5 shows the MDS State Reports access link.

Minnesota Case Mix Review expects that this will be a smooth transition; however there has been no opportunity to test this CMS-created link. If facilities experience any difficulties accessing their Case Mix Notifications and Checklists, we will do our best to troubleshoot and correct the system as soon as possible. If you experience difficulties, please contact Brenda Boike-Meyers at 651-201-3817 or email her at
