May 15 is a big deadline for the Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP). “According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), this is our last opportunity to do a correction for an entire year’s worth of MDS data,” points out Carol Maher, RN-BC, RAC-MT, CPC, director of education for Hansen, Hunter & Co. PC in Vancouver, WA.
“Moving forward, we will only have the opportunity to correct MDSs with errors related to SNF QRP for one quarter at a time,” says Maher. “There won’t be this allowance to review and correct for a whole year.”
