CMS: Take advantage of voluntary testing for PBJ

More providers should be diving into voluntary testing for Payroll-Based Journal reporting, a top Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services official said Thursday.

Long-term care providers are required to start tracking employee hours starting July 1, with Nov. 14 as the first deadline to have submitted data. Around 10,000 facilities have registered, leaving about 6,000 to go, said Evan Shulman, CMS deputy director in the Division of Nursing Homes, Survey and Certification Group, during this week’s PharMerica Symposium in Dallas.
