ESRD QIP PY 2024 Preview Period Reminder

ESRD QIP PY 2024 Preview Period Reminder

July 17, 2023

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reminds you that the Payment Year (PY) 2024 End Stage Renal Disease Quality Incentive Program (ESRD QIP) Preview Period opened on Monday, July 17, 2023, and will close on Thursday, August 17, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. If your organization has not already done so, CMS recommends that every organization take the following steps:

  • Facility Viewers and Facility and Corporate Points of Contact (POCs) should log into the ESRD Quality Reporting System (EQRS) to verify that their EQRS role is active. Following this recommendation will help ensure necessary access during the ESRD QIP preview period. To login and verify your EQRS role click here:
  • Facility Viewers and Facility and Corporate POCs should review their facility’s preview Performance Score Report (PSR), which is available through the ESRD QIP user interface (UI) in the EQRS.
  • POCs should submit inquiries about their facility’s PY 2024 preview scores before the preview period concludes.

CMS will evaluate all inquiries and make any necessary adjustments to facility PSRs. Facilities will continue to receive responses to their inquiries via the ESRD QIP UI in EQRS after the close of the preview period.

Note: Per the Calendar Year (CY) 2023 ESRD Prospective Payment System Final Rule, the Standardized Hospitalization Ratio and Standardized Readmission Ratio clinical measures will be expressed as rates beginning in PY 2024. Expressing these measures results as rates will help providers and patients better understand a facility’s performance on these measures and will make it easier for facilities to track performance from year to year.

To learn more about the ESRD QIP and the PY 2024 preview period, please visit the ESRD QIP section of More information on using EQRS including user role requests, downloading preview PSRs, and submitting inquiries will be covered in the August 8, 2023, ESRD Outreach Communication and Training Town Hall event.
