Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Nursing Home Match (MDS)

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The purpose of the project is to detect unreported Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipient admissions to Title XIX institutions. A file containing SSN's of SSI recipients (all eligible individuals and members of eligible couples in current pay) will be matched against the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) Minimum Data Set (MDS) database which contains admission, discharge, re-entry and assessment information about persons in Title XIX facilities for all 50 States and Washington, D.C. This database is updated monthly. The match will produce an output file containing MDS data pertinent to SSI eligibility on matched records. This data will be compared back to the SSR data to generate alerts to the Field Offices for their actions.
