SNF Provider Preview Reports Are Now Available

May 5, 2023
Policy Snapshot

Please remember that the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Provider Preview Reports have been updated and are now available. These reports contain provider performance scores for quality measures, which will be published on Care Compare and Provider Data Catalog (PDC) during the July 2023 refresh.

The data contained within the preview reports are based on quality assessment data submitted by SNFs from quarter 4, 2021, through quarter 3, 2022. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 Vaccination Coverage among Healthcare Personnel (HCP) measure reflects data from quarter 3, 2022. The data for the claims-based measures will display data from quarter 3, 2019, through quarter 4, 2019, and quarter 3, 2020,  through quarter 2, 2021, for this refresh, and for the SNF Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) measure, from quarter 4, 2020, through quarter 3, 2021.

Providers have until May 15, 2023, to review their performance data. Only updates/corrections to the underlying assessment data before the final data submission deadline will be reflected in the publicly reported data on Care Compare. If a provider updates assessment data after the final data submission deadline, the updated data will only be reflected in the Facility-Level Quality Measure (QM) report and Patient-Level QM report. Updates submitted after the final data submission deadline will not be reflected in the Provider Preview Reports or on the Care Compare website. However, providers can request Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (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.
