What's the current status of the ESRD QIP?
The End-Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Program (ESRD QIP) is a multi-year project. The ESRD QIP establishes incentives for dialysis facilities serving the ESRD population to meet performance standards established by CMS. The quality measures are improved every year via rulemaking. Facility evaluation and payment reductions in a given payment year (PY) are based on performance during a prior year.
Here’s a snapshot outlining some of what is happening or planned for the ESRD QIP in 2019:
