SNF QRP Submission Deadline Approaching

Background

The Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP) requires facilities to report assessment data in a timely manner. Providers must submit all data necessary to calculate the SNF QRP measures on at least 80% of the MDS assessments to be in compliance and avoid a 2% reduction to their Annual Payment Update (APU).

What you need to know

MDS data for Quarter 2 of CY 2018 (4/1/18-6/30/18) must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. PST on November 15, 2018.

Providers are encouraged to run validation and analysis reports prior to each quarterly reporting deadline to insure all required data has been submitted.

CMS, via subcontractor CORMAC, notifies SNF’s prior to the submission deadline if the facility is not meeting APU threshold via email. If you need to add or change the email address to which these messages are sent, email QRPHelp@cormac-corp.com.

The list of measures required for this deadline can be found on the CMS QRP website:
