New September 1 QASP Data Submission Deadline

August 23, 2016

Effective September 1, 2016, the Quality and Accountability Supplemental Payment (QASP) Program has established a new data submission deadline. Providers must submit QASP data no later than September 1 of the following state fiscal year. For example, data for the 2015 – 2016 fiscal year must be submitted no later September 1, 2016.

QASP facility-specific eligibility scores are determined annually for each fiscal year. Therefore, late data submissions, data updates, amendments or alterations that occur after the September 1 deadline are not used by the QASP Program.

The new deadline of September 1 gives providers two months after the end of the fiscal year to finalize and submit the data that the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) requires to determine eligibility and score quality of care, including the Minimum Data Set (MDS) resident assessment files.
