June Deadlines for CJR Participants

MedBen Analytics

MedBen Analytics clients should note that several important deadlines are approaching for hospitals participating in comprehensive care for joint replacement (CJR):

June 8, 2017 -- Last day to submit Calculation Error Form
Clients who have received a finding in their CJR Reconciliation: Performance Year 1 (PY1) report may wish to voluntarily respond to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The completed form must be accompanied by eligibility findings or other relevant information. MedBen Analytics clients who have questions about submitting the form may contact Manager of Operations Cari Coventry at 800-423-3151, ext. 405 or

June 30, 2017 - Last day to collect pre-operative patient-reported outcomes (PRO) data on eligible total hip arthroplasty/total knee arthroplasty (THA/TKA) procedures
Pre-operative data should be collected between 0 to 90 days prior to the eligible elective, primary THA/TKA procedure. The hospital will then need to collect this patient's post-operative data 270 to 365 days (9-12 months) after the patient's procedure.

June 30, 2017 - Performance Year 2's eligible THA/TKA procedure window closes
Hospitals should collect data for Medicare patients who are aged 65 and older, and undergoing elective, primary THA/TKA procedures. A hospital will need to assess a patient's eligibility for inclusion in the voluntary data collection on the day of or prior to the THA/TKA procedure (before billing codes are submitted). Therefore, hospitals will primarily use clinical criteria to exclude patients.
