August 18 Is the Deadline for Submitting SNF QRP Reconsideration Requests for Calendar 2019 Data

By CMS - July 14, 2020

SNF Quality Reporting Program: Non-Compliance Notifications. Reconsiderations are due by August 18, 2020.

CMS is providing notifications to Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) that were determined to be out of compliance with SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) requirements for calendar year (CY) 2019, which will affect their fiscal year (FY) 2021 Annual Payment Update (APU). Non-compliance notifications will be distributed by the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and will also be placed into facilities’ CASPER folders in QIES on July 13, 2020. Either notification is official notice of non-compliance. Facilities that receive a letter of non-compliance may submit a request for reconsideration to CMS via email no later than 11:59 pm, August 18, 2020. 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.

Please note: Any reconsideration containing protected health information (PHI) will not be processed. All PHI must be removed in order for a reconsideration to be reviewed.
