Please be advised that CMS has added death codes (COD, Cause of Death) to the CMS 2746 form in EQRS specifically to capture deaths related to COVID-19.


If you are trying to complete the 2746 but have lost Scope of the patient, please do the following:

- delete the Discharge info from the Admit page

- Add Date of Death/Cause of Death to the Attributes page

- check that the discharge info Re-Appears on the Admit page

- check if the 2746 becomes populated
