Hospice QRP: Timeliness Compliance Threshold Report - Footnote Update
Please be advised that the footnote on the Hospice Timeliness Compliance Threshold Report has been updated for the FY 2019 and FY 2020 reports. The submission requirements have not changed; only the wording of the footnote has been enhanced to clarify that the score shown on the report is considered preliminary.
For example, the following is the wording of the footnote on the FY 2019 Timelines Compliance Threshold Report:
“Per requirements set forth by CMS, 80% of all required HIS records must be submitted within the 30-day submission deadline to avoid the 2-percentage point reduction in the FY 2019 APU. Extensions and exceptions approved according to CMS policy have not been applied in the score calculations. As such, the score in this report is considered preliminary.”
