On January 30, 2020, CMS published the FY 2022 Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Annual Payment Update (APU) Table for Reporting Assessment-Based Measures and Standardized Patient Assessment Data Elements (SPADES).
Since that time, CMS has delayed the release of the SNF Minimum Data Set (MDS) Version 1.18.0 needed to support the Transfer of Health (TOH) Information Quality Measures and the new or revised SPADEs due to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.
CMS has revised the SNF QRP APU table to reflect the updated Data Collection periods and applicable version number. The table has also been updated with new footers to provide additional clarity on the use of the dash (-) for specific items. The revised table can be found in the Downloads section below with the title SNF QRP Table for Reporting Assessment-Based Measures for the FY 2022 SNF QRP APU.
