The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has extended the deadline for submitting third-quarter data to the Post-Acute Care Quality Reporting Program from Feb. 15 to Feb. 21 due to an issue with CMSNet that affected providers’ ability to submit assessment data to the QIES-ASAP system. Providers unable to meet the new deadline can also apply for an extension. For more on how to apply for an extension, visit CMS’s websites for home health, long-term care hospital, inpatient rehabilitation hospital, and skilled nursing facility quality reporting.
