QRP Data Correction Deadline Now June 1st
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has delayed the date by which nursing homes were required to submit any MDS data and corrections for use in the Quality Reporting Program (QRP) from May 15th to June 1, 2017.
As part of the QRP, CMS will be calculating the initial round of QRP measures using assessment data for residents admitted to the home on or after Oct. 1, 2016 and discharged through Dec. 31, 2016. While no additional reporting is required, it is important that homes ensure that this MDS data is complete. Providers must submit all data necessary to calculate SNF QRP measures on at least 80% of the MDS assessments submitted to avoid a reduction to their October 2017 Medicare Part A rate. The CMS QRP Quick Reference Guide is available here.
