CMS has issued notification to providers who were determined to be out of compliance with the Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP) requirements for 2019. Reporting noncompliance affects the fiscal year 2021 annual payment update (APU), resulting in a two percentage point reduction in the SNF’s APU.

If applicable, CMS posted this notification to the provider’s Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reports inbox folder in the Quality Improvement and Evaluation System on July 13, 2020. Medicare Administrative Contractors also are notifying noncompliant providers.

Requests for reconsideration must be submitted to CMS by email no later than August 18, 2020. If you have questions, reach out to your BKD Trusted Advisor™ or use the Contact Us form below.
