You can also look up CMS-1533-FC...it's a 2,000+ document. These changes were in result if the Medicare changes in 2006, which outlined the model that they are shifting to outcome-based reimbursement, mainly because if the positive outcomes of nursing care.

I noticed when nursing applications started asking about Medicare exclusion...this is what it is all about, I guess. *shrugs*
