NCIS Web Access Process

Thank you for your interest in the Nebraska Casemix Internet System Web (NCIS Web) Access information though the internet. The NCIS website was developed in conjunction with MDS 3.0, the Nebraska Casemix system as an easy online service to facilitate providers with the following areas:
  • Reviewing care level/weighted days reports
  • Entering bed hold days
  • Viewing 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 on line to resolve assessment issues.  As we continue to work towards a user friendly, functional system, provider comments are encouraged.
