The Second Quarter Preliminary RUG Reports are Coming Soon

The Second Quarter Preliminary RUG Reports are Coming Soon

The Second Quarter 2022 Preliminary RUG report will be generated during the week of 07/11/2022. It will include all MDS assessments from 04/01/2022 through 06/30/2022 that have been transmitted to CMS/QIES by 07/08/2022. This report will be emailed to the address identified to us as authorized by your facility after 07/11/2022.

The July 2022 report is run so you can carefully review and make corrections needed to all assessments for Q2 2022 for Case Mix calculations. The Second Quarter 2022 Preliminary report will help you predict likely reimbursement rates. It includes all the same assessments and timelines used in the 2nd Semi-Annual Report due in November, which sets the Nursing Home rates starting January, 2023.

Please transmit modifications or corrections by end of business day on Friday, July 8, 2022.  We anticipate that these changes will then be available for inclusion, leading to more accurate information for you to use.

The RUG Report schedule for the entire year of 2022 is available here.
