CROWNWeb Reporting for Dialysis Facilities Affected by Hurricane Harvey
The purpose of this communication is to notify dialysis facilities that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will grant 60-day extensions from CROWNWeb reporting due to the recent Texas and Louisiana flooding resulting from Hurricane Harvey. CMS is considering the possible damage to facilities and/or systems resulting in their inability to gather or submit data, as well as the need to prioritize immediate resources for direct patient care.
The 60-day extensions apply to the providers located within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)-designated “major disaster” counties of Texas and parishes of Louisiana. To view the CMS CROWN memorandum in its entirety please click here.
