*TIME SENSITIVE* CMS HOSTING NATIONAL PROVIDER CALL Learn CMS’ Review and Corrections Process for VBP before it’s too late!

Phase One Review and Corrections Call — March 20th

The SNF Value Based Program measure, Skilled Nursing Facility 30-Day All-Cause Readmission Measure (SNFRM) estimates the risk-standardized rate of all-cause, unplanned hospital readmissions of Medicare SNF beneficiaries within 30 days of discharge from their prior acute hospitalization. Incentive payments based on this measure began in Oct 2018 for FY 2019. It is based on how a facility scores when comparing their baseline period versus their performance period, and utilizes a performance and achievement score.

Phase One is an opportunity for SNFs to review and submit corrections to the quality and facility-level information that will be made publicly available. The deadline for correction submission is April 1, 2019.
