PBJ Submission Deadline Is May 15th

Nursing homes must finalize Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) data covering Jan. 1st through March 31, 2023 by Mon., May 15th. Only data that are successfully submitted by the deadline are accepted, and inaccurate or missing submissions can result in a home being assigned a single star for the staffing domain and increase the likelihood of an audit. PBJ data are also used to monitor compliance with State staffing level requirements.

The PBJ Policy Manual, updated in June 2022 along with related resources including a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), are available for download at the bottom of the dedicated Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) PBJ webpage here. Information from CMS describing the various PBJ reports providers may access, including general and detailed Minimum Data Set (MDS) census reports, is available here. Providers are urged to submit data and run and review the various reports with sufficient time to make any necessary corrections prior to the final due date. Additional information is available here.
