CMS to Issue Corrected SNF VBP Performance Score Reports by Aug. 31
CMS notified SNFs on Aug 22 that they made an error in calculating the baseline period performance (FY2016 data) used to determine their readmission performance scores. They will be placing corrected reports into the SNFs CASPER folders by August 31.
The key point is that SNFs' performance scores and value-based incentive payment (VBIP) modifier may be different in the corrected reports. The VBIP determines how a SNF's Medicare rate is adjusted beginning October 1, 2019.
NFs should all have received an email with this information. Stay tuned to any updates from LeadingAge and LeadingAge Ohio on this subject.
