ESRD QIP Final PSRs and PSCs for PY 2021 Now Available Online

CMS has released the Payment Year (PY) 2021 End-Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Program (ESRD QIP) Final Performance Score Reports (PSR) and Performance Score Certificates (PSC). Authorized facility staff may log onto the ESRD Quality Reporting System (EQRS) to download and save these documents as soon as possible.

PY 2021 Final PSR
The PY 2021 Final PSR documents your facility’s performance during 2019 and any payment reduction that CMS will impose for reimbursement on 2021 claims. The Final PSR reflects any applicable revisions to your facility’s performance scores from those displayed during the Preview Period.

PY 2021 PSC
Each facility is required to download, print, and post both the English and Spanish versions of the PSC in a prominent patient area within fifteen (15) business days of their availability; facilities also must ensure that these documents remain posted throughout 2021.

Save Your Facility’s Documents
PY 2021 Final PSRs and PSCs will only be available on EQRS until December 31, 2020. We encourage each facility to save an electronic copy of their Final PSR and PSC for reference, reprinting, and reposting throughout the year should the need arise. Facilities who fail to save a copy by December 31, 2020 can request an additional copy by e-mail from the QualityNet Help Desk, but should expect a delay in receiving the requested documentation.
