Home Health Agencies (HHAs) Urged to Establish Access to the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES) By December 23, 2019
Attention Home Health Agencies (HHAs): Avoid Payment Delays by registering for iQIES no later than December 23
Special Edition (SE) article SE19025 notifies HHAs that they need to onboard to the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES) by establishing a Healthcare Quality Information System Access, Roles, and Profile System (HARP) account and selecting an iQIES role. Please see the Background and Additional Information sections for more on this topic. Please note that failure to obtain access to iQIES by December 23rd will impact your agencies’ ability to submit assessment data needed for claims matching purposes after January 1, 2020. Claims that cannot be matched to assessments will be returned to the HHA, delaying Medicare payment.
All HHAs need access to the upgraded Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES) to submit assessment data beginning January 1, 2020. Please review this information and share it with your staff.
