SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Submission Deadline Changed

Lyn Bentley, MSW

The SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) submission deadline changed from May 15, 2017 to June 1, 2017. Late last week, AHCA heard from many members who received inaccurate notifications from CMS indicating they had failed to submit data for the QRP. It was a problem on CMS’s end and after several emails with CMS and a quick phone call, CMS assured us they would extend the submission deadline. Over the weekend, CMS included a notice in their daily email and also posted an update to the CMS SNF QRP website.

The email included the following information: Due to extenuating circumstances, the reporting deadline for the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Fiscal Year 2018 payment determination has been extended from May 15, 2017 to June 1, 2017.

The MDS assessment data for October-December (Q4) of calendar year 2016 are due with this submission deadline. For a list of measures required for this deadline visit the SNF Quality Reporting Program Data Submission Deadlines webpage.
