The reporting deadline for the Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP) for the fiscal year (FY) 2018 payment determination has been extended to 11:59 p.m. Pacific standard time on June 1 due to “extenuating circumstances,” the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced on Friday May 12. MDS assessment data for Oct. 1 – Dec. 31, 2016 are due with this submission deadline. These extenuating circumstances include some facilities receiving notifications from CMS contractor CORMAC that incorrectly stated they had not submitted any data under the SNF QRP, according to a letter obtained by Judy Wilhide Brandt, RN, BA, QCP, CPC, RAC-MT, DNS-CT, principal of Wilhide Consulting in Virginia Beach, VA.
