Medical Assessment of all OSS Residents




Effective October 1, 2014, SCDHHS will begin to conduct medical assessments of Optional State Supplementation (OSS) residents.  These medical assessments will be required of all residents within the program.  The assessments will be in the form of a survey.  Please note that the new medical assessment policy will not affect any resident’s standing within the program.  To learn more about the new assessment policy please review the OSS Provider Manual on the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Serviceswebsite.

If you have any questions regarding the new policy or any other aspect of OSS, please contact the Division of Community and Facility Services at (803) 898-1060.  We believe that this new policy will help to improve the overall quality of the OSS program.  We thank you in advance for your help in facilitating a smooth transition during the implementation of this new policy.

Thank you for your continued support of the South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid program.
