The Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Provider Preview Reports have been updated by the CMS and are now available for review. These reports contain provider performance scores for quality measures, which will be published on Care Compare and Provider Data Catalog (PDC) during the April 2023 refresh.
The data contained within the Preview Reports are based on:
- Quality MDS assessment data submitted by SNFs from Quarter 3, 2021 through Quarter 2, 2022.
- CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel (HCP) measure reflecting data from Quarter 2, 2022.
- Multiple claims-based measures data from Quarter 3, 2019 through Quarter 4, 2019 and Quarter 3, 2020 through Quarter 2, 2021.
- The SNF Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) measure, using claims data from Quarter 4, 2020 through Quarter 3, 2021.
Nursing facilities have until February 16, 2023, to review their performance data. Corrections to the underlying data will not be permitted during this time. However, providers can request CMS review of their data during the preview period if they believe the quality measure scores that are displayed within their Preview Reports are inaccurate.
