Description: 
CMS hosts an MLN Connects® National Provider Call on the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP), a pay-for-performance initiative that ties a facility's quality scores to a payment percentage reduction over the course of a Payment Year (PY). On July 15, a preliminary PY 2016 Performance Score Report (PSR) will be available for ESRD facilities. Find out how to access, review, and submit a formal inquiry about your report by the August 15 deadline. A question and answer session follows the presentation.

  • Where to access help and additional information

Target Audience: Dialysis clinics and organizations, nephrologists, hospitals with dialysis units, billers/coders, and quality improvement experts.
