On November 17, 2022, it was communicated in Provider Bulletin #135 that Partners was implementing a deadline of five days after the reporting period ends for providers/EORs to submit backup staffing and attestation reports.

What is happening?

Partners is extending that
deadline to the last day of the next reporting period to allow providers/EORs sufficient time to gather and verify the information being submitted. (Example: Back-Up staffing reports and attestations of no backup staffing incidents for dates 11/1/22-11/15/22 should be submitted by 11/30/22.)

Who can providers contact with questions?
