PAC QRP - Extraordinary Circumstances Extension / Exception (ECE) due to Hurricane Matthew

CMS Open Door Forum

CMS intends to grant quality reporting data submission exceptions to Medicare providers in several care settings adversely affected by the devastating impact of Hurricane Matthew, including post-acute care (PAC) settings such as Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), Hospice, and Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs). For the specified reporting quarter(s), as indicated in the full communication posted on the respective CMS QRP Reconsideration and Exception and Extension websites, affected providers will not be required to submit quality measure data to meet submission requirements. 
CMS is exercising its authority to grant exceptions for data submission requirements for the PAC quality reporting programs (QRP) for providers located within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)-designated “major disaster” counties of Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina.  View the list of FEMA-designated counties and further information on the CMS webpages for your setting:
