SNF Quality Reporting Program: Non-compliance letters available
CMS has provided notifications to facilities that were determined to be out of compliance with the quality reporting requirements for the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP), which may result in a 2% reduction that will affect their FY 2020 Annual Payment Update (APU). Non-compliance notifications have been sent to the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and were placed into facilities’ CASPER folders in QIES on July 16, 2019. Facilities that receive a letter of non-compliance may submit a request for reconsideration to CMS via email no later than 11:59 pm PST, August 15, 2019. 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.
For more information on QRP Compliance you can go to CMS website, or contact Coretactics today.
