Continuous Skilled Nursing (CSN) Agency Manual for MassHealth Providers

The CSN Agency Manual guides CSN providers to the regulations, administrative and billing instructions, and service codes they need.

Administrative regulations and billing regulations apply to all providers and are contained in 130 CMR 450.000. These regulations are reproduced as Subchapters 1, 2, and 3 in this and all other manuals.

Program regulations cover matters that apply specifically to the type of provider for which the manual was prepared. For CSN providers, those matters are covered in 130 CMR 438.000, reproduced as Subchapter 4 in the Continuous Skilled Nursing Agency Manual.

The Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) establishes rates for MassHealth services. These rate regulations for CSN services may be found in 101 CMR 361.00.
