Review and Corrections Requests for Hospital VBP Program Due Aug. 31

All hospital review and corrections calculation requests for the fiscal year 2017 hospital value-based purchasing (VBP) percentage payment summary reports (PPSRs) must be submitted to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) no later than Aug. 31 at 11:59 p.m. (PT). Hospitals that do not submit a formal review and correction calculation request by Aug. 31 will waive eligibility to appeal the recalculation of their performance scores. Hospitals may request an appeal only after first requesting a formal review and correction of their performance scores, and they must have also received a decision from CMS denying their request.

The PPSRs are available for review on QualityNet. For technical questions or issues related to accessing the PPSR, contact the QualityNet Help Desk at or call (866) 288-8912. To submit questions or for more information about the PPSR or the Hospital VBP program, use the CMS Hospitals-Inpatient Questions and Answers tool or call (844) 472-4477
