OBRA Online System Implementation Delayed

Posted on October 30, 2020

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Office of Specialized Nursing Home/Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) Programs has delayed the implementation of the online system for submitting forms 3877 and 3878 regarding the discharge of certain patients to a skilled nursing facility, inpatient rehabilitation facility or other post-acute care location. The OBRA office intends to allow hospital organizations to test the new online system beginning Nov. 12 and fully implement the e-file system Jan. 19. Statewide registration for the electronic system is scheduled to begin Jan. 4, prior to the Jan. 19 go-live date.

The MHA will begin working with members soon to assist with implementation. For more information, contact Vickie Kunz at the MHA.
