On Dec. 11, 2017, an alert was sent via Govdelivery that contained the percentage of Medicaid NF days required for private NFs who wish to enroll in QIPP year 2 (Sept. 1, 2018 - Aug. 31, 2018). The percentage that was provided in error was 76.58%.

Private nursing facilities that are interested in participating in QIPP must have a percentage of Medicaid NF days of service that is greater than or equal to the private NF QIPP eligibility cut-off point, which will be equal to the mean percentage of historical Medicaid NF days of service provided under fee-for-service (FFS) and MC by all private NFs plus one standard deviation, as determined by HHSC. The private NF QIPP eligibility period cut-off point is 76.68% for the second QIPP year is based on the 2015 cost report.

If you have any questions related to QIPP, please send your questions to QIPP@hhsc.state.tx.us.
