CMS Payroll Based Journal (PBJ) requirement starts on July 1, 2016

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

PBJ requirements mandate that all SNF submit their staffing data to CMS starting on July 1, 2016. AHCA has been working directly with CMS to try to delay this process, but we believe CMS will enact this requirement on July 1st. AHCA has been developing educational material and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for members to assist in this process. Attached is their current FAQ and a link to all the educational material. You will need your AHCA password to access. If you need help with your password, just go onto their site and at the log in area, you can request help directly from them.
