During the PY 2025 ESRD QIP Preview Period:
CMS recommends that every organization take the following steps:

  • 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 EQRS.
  • POCs should submit inquiries about their facility’s PY 2025 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.
