Hospital VBP Program Estimated Percentage Payment Summary Report now available
July 30, 2012
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has made the Estimated Percentage Payment Summary Report for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program available on My QualityNet.
To access the report, hospital staff must have an active QualityNet account and have been assigned the necessary QualityNet roles: 1) File Exchange & Search, and 2) Hospital Reporting Feedback-Inpatient. (Quality Improvement Organization staff will need the Hospital Report Contact role.)
The FY 2013 Estimated Percentage Payment Summary Report informs each hospital participating in the FY 2013 Hospital VBP Program of its estimated value-based incentive payment. The report allows hospitals to anticipate their Total Performance Score (TPS) and value-based incentive payment adjustment for the first year of the program.
Various Hospital VBP resources are available elsewhere on QualityNet, including an Estimated Percentage Payment Summary Report Fact Sheet (PDF), instructions on How to Read Your Report (PDF), and Frequently Asked Questions about Hospital VBP (PDF).
For technical questions or issues related to accessing the Estimated Percentage Payment Summary Report, contact the QualityNet Help Desk at email@example.com or call (866) 288-8912.
