CMS extended the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP) Preview Period for Payment Year (PY) 2017 through 5 pm ET on Friday, September 30, 2016. The Preview Period is an opportunity for outpatient dialysis facilities to review their scores before they are finalized.
Facilities with PY 2017 ESRD QIP scores that fail to meet or exceed the minimum Total Performance Score face reimbursement reductions of up to 2 percent for dialysis treatments that will be rendered during 2017.
