AWQP Appeals and Quality Performance Plan Webinar #2

August 2, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Managed Long-Term Services and Supports’ Any Willing Qualified Provider (AWQP) Initiative: Appeal Request and Quality Performance Plan (QPP) Reports

The Any Willing Qualified Provider (AWQP) is a Department of Human Services (DHS) nursing home quality improvement initiative, which is being implemented under Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS). AWQP will require Medicaid certified nursing facilities (NFs) serving MLTSS participants to meet Quality Performance Standards (QPS) as a means to raise the overall quality of care and establish standards for moving from state-set rates to negotiated, value-based contracting.

This webinar will present an overview of the appeal request and the quality performance plan (QPP) report.  NFs will have the opportunity to appeal data results that impact or may impact their AWQP designation. The QPP Report is an action plan created by the NF to address any of the seven measures that fall outside the State benchmark.  The QPP Report is used to support the NF’s continuous quality improvement efforts.


This webinar will focus on the following:

  • What is an Appeal Request?
  • Reasons for Appeal
  • Criteria for Measures
  • Supporting Documentation
  • How appeals will be reflected on the QPS Report?
  • What is a QPP Report and when should a facility create one?
  • When to submit a QPP Report?
  • Timeframes for the Appeal Requests and QPP Reports
