Home Health Quality Reporting Data Submission Deadlines

Overview

The Quality Assessment Only (QAO) performance requirement for the home health annual performance update (APU) is 90%. The table below shows the QAO reporting schedule to home health agencies for 2021. More information on the QAO performance requirement is available on the Home Health Quality Reporting webpage. The QAO Interim and Annual Performance Reports will remain in the iQIES folders for 120 days.

HHQRP data submission requirements were temporarily exempted in response to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. Additionally, public reporting of home health agencies’ data was frozen after the October 2020 refresh through October 2021. Beginning with the January 2022 refresh public reporting will resume for quality measure data, including the release of Provider Preview Reports. For additional information on COVID-19 PHE data exemption, please see the Home Health COVID-19 Public Reporting Tip Sheet (PDF) in the Downloads section of the Home Health QRP Training webpage.
