CMS issues QIS implementation priority order for states

Share this article:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has issued guidance for states that currently are not implementing the Quality Indicator Survey.

The Survey & Certification Letter released earlier this month provides a QIS implementation order so they have a general expectation of the timing for their QIS training and implementation. The priority order divides these states into six different bands. The QIS will be another type of federal survey for nursing homes to determine whether they are in compliance with requirements.

CMS is implementing the QIS nationally. So far, the implementation includes 11 states. Connecticut has fully implemented the QIS and the other 10 states are in various stages of QIS training and implementation.
