CMS Issues SNF QRP: Non-Compliance Letters

Holly Harmon

CMS announced last week that skilled nursing facility (SNFs) have been notified if they were determined to be non-compliant with SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) requirements for Quarter 4 of CY 2016, which will affect their FY 2018 Annual Payment Update (APU).  

Non-compliance notifications were placed into providers’ CASPER folders in QIES on July 14, 2017, and also mailed directly to providers. Providers that receive a letter of non-compliance may submit a request for reconsideration to CMS via email no later than 11:59pm PST, August 13, 2017.

CMS advises if you receive a notice of non-compliance and would like to request a reconsideration, see the instructions in your notification letter and on the SNF Quality Reporting Reconsideration and Exception & Extension webpage.

CMS has advised AHCA that SNFs meeting the SNF QRP requirements will not receive communication confirming their compliance. AHCA continues to advocate for more effective reporting from CMS to SNFs to aid in the understanding and management of SNF QRP.
