Several weeks ago, OMPP announced that due to CMS’ immediate elimination of the quality measure for “percentage of long-stay residents who report moderate to severe pain,” it was in the process of working on options for our VBP calculation. This week, OMPP clarified the following:
For facilities that are missing a score for a quality measure, gross up the total score of its remaining quality measures. The total score from the remaining quality measures is then multiplied by the product of nine (9) divided by the number of its quality measures with a score. The resulting value is then rounded to the nearest twenty (20) point increment.
