CMS releases SNF Provider Preview Reports

CMS recently released the updated SNF Provider Preview Reports. Based on quality data submitted by SNFs, the reports include assessment-based quality measures recorded between Q1 2018 and Q4 2018 and claims-based quality measures recorded between Q4 2016 and Q3 2018.

SNFs have the opportunity to review their performance data until September 16. While corrections to the data cannot be made during the review period, SNFs can request that CMS review the data for accuracy. They have until September 16 to submit such requests. The report will be publicly displayed in October after the Nursing Home Compare site refresh.

Information on accessing the CMS preview report can be found on the Preview Report Access Instructions document. The only method for submitting a review request to CMS is via email at SNFQRPPRquestions@cms.hhs.gov
