 CMS Says Updated SNF Provider Preview Reports Are Now Available

​The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on Aug. 14 said Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Provider Preview Reports have been updated and are now available for viewing.

The agency said the data within the Preview Reports is culled from quality data submitted by SNFs between the first quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2018 for assessment-based quality measures, and between the fourth quarter of 2016 to the third quarter of 2018 for claims-based quality measures. 

Providers have until Sept. 16 to review their performance data prior to the October Nursing Home Compare site refresh, during which the data will be publicly displayed.

“Corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time; however, providers can request CMS review of their data during the preview period if they believe the quality measure scores that are displayed within their Preview Reports are inaccurate,” CMS said. 

The agency also said it will be posting quality measure scores for the SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Potentially Preventable Readmissions measure for the first time during this refresh. In addition to this, CMS has updated the methodology for assigning providers to performance categories for the publicly displayed SNF QRP Discharge to Community measure for the October refresh of Nursing Home Compare and beyond.
