The purpose of the tip sheet is to help providers understand the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) public reporting strategy for the quality reporting program (QRP) to account for CMS quality data submissions that were optional and excepted from public reporting due to the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). The impact on CMS’ Compare websites refreshes are also outlined.
The following Quality Reporting Programs have Tip Sheets available:
- SNF QRP COVID-19 Public Reporting
- HH QRP COVID-19 Public Reporting
- Hospice QRP COVID-19 Public Reporting
- IRF QRP COVID-19 Public Reporting
- LTCH QRP COVID-19 Public Reporting
Each tip sheet serves as a supplemental document to the respective COVID-19 PHE Tip Sheet published in July 2020, providing guidance to address quality data submissions after July 1, 2020, once the temporary exceptions from the COVID-19 PHE ended.
