CROWNWeb Reporting for Dialysis Facilities Affected by Hurricane Irma

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 U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Florida flooding resulting from Hurricane Irma. 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 and municipios listed in the full CMS CROWN Memorandum, as of the date of this communication.
