PBJ Update – Electronic Staffing Submission

Nancy Leveille and Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

On April 21, 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued S&C: 17-25-NH on the Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ). In the memorandum, CMS notes that it will provide feedback to each facility through monthly Provider Preview reports available in CASPER to help with improved data submission. Providers are encouraged to review this data and make corrections for upcoming submission deadlines. CMS is also working on developing an off-site and on-site audit process that will be utilized to verify the accuracy of the data that is submitted.
