Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Non-Compliance Letters

CMS is providing notifications to facilities that were determined to be out of compliance with the quality reporting requirements for the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP), which will affect their FY 2020 Annual Payment Update (APU).

Non-compliance notifications were sent to the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) and placed into facilities’ CASPER folders in QIES on July 16, 2019. Facilities that receive a letter of non-compliance may submit a request for reconsideration to CMS via email no later than 11:59 pm PST, August 15, 2019.

Instructions for the reconsideration process are in the non-compliance letter and available on the SNF Quality Reporting Reconsideration and Exception & Extension webpage.
