On January 17, 2017, CMS conducted a National Provider Call (NPC) discussing the Payment Year 2020 (PY2020) Final Rule. Some attendees posed questions during the questions-and-answers portion of the call
that required additional research to answer fully. CMS asked those participants to send their questions to the ESRD QIP mailbox for further examination. Other attendees expressed interest in receiving those answers as well. In an effort to meet this need, CMS has provided a compilation of select questions and responses, at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/ESRDQIP/Downloads/ESRD-QIP-mailbox-QA-from-Final-Rule-NPC.pdf .
