What you need to know

The Nebraska Casemix Internet System (NCIS) was developed as an easy online service to help providers to:

  • Review care level/weighted days reports
  • Enter bed hold days
  • View past due assessments and errors that are causing assessments to be rejected by the Nebraska Casemix system.
  • Enter/receive comments on care level/weighted day reports and bed holds

This replaces paper documents and related costs and will allow providers and state staff to communicate online to resolve assessment issues.  As we continue to work towards a user friendly, functional system, provider comments are encouraged.
