Quality Improvement Program Plans (QIPPs) outline the elements of a Medicare Advantage organization’s QI Program and provide a framework for how a plan will execute the QI program requirements at 42 CFR 422.152.
QIPPs are submitted to CMS as part of the contract and SNP application processes. QIPP templates are included in both the contract applications and SNP applications.
SNP QIPPs must also include information about the additional SNP specific QI Program requirements at 42 CFR 422.152(g).
