October 2021 Revisions Quality Measure Rating Changes: The “Rate of successful return to home and community from a SNF” measure will be updated in October, although the time period that the measure covers will continue to be October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2019. Due to this change the point thresholds (cut-points) for this measure will be changed to maintain the same distribution of rating points for this measure, and the new values are provided in Appendix Table A2 of this document.
