MACs Begin Distributing QRP Non-Compliance Letters

0 176

On July 13, 2022, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) distributed notifications to inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) that were determined to be out of compliance with Quality Reporting Program (QRP) requirements for calendar year (CY) 2021, which will affect their FY 2023 Annual Payment Update (APU). Non-compliance notifications were placed into facilities’ “Certification and Survey Provider Enhance Reports” (CASPER) folders in the Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (QIES) for hospice and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), and into facilities’ “My Reports” folders in the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES) for IRFs and long-term care hospitals (LTCHs). If a facility received a letter of non-compliance, it may submit a request for reconsideration to CMS via email. The submission deadline is 11:59 pm on August 11, 2022.
