SNF Quality Reporting Program: Non-Compliance Letters

Author: Nancy Leveille and Lisa Volk* Published in Clinical & Quality

CMS provided notifications to facilities that were determined to be non-compliant with Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) requirements for Quarter 4 of CY 2016, which will affect their FY 2018 annual payment update (APU). Notifications of non-compliance were placed into facilities’ Quality Improvement and Evaluation Systems (QIES) - Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reporting (CASPER) system on July 14, 2017 and also mailed directly to providers. Providers that receive a letter of non-compliance may submit a request for reconsideration to CMS via email no later than 11:59pm PST, August 13, 2017. 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.
