Dear Flex Coordinators,
As we flow into the holiday season, I find myself reflecting on what I have been grateful for throughout the year. This year has certainly tested us, but it has made me more appreciative of the people I (virtually) surround myself with, this includes you all. I am astounded by your patience, resiliency, and adaptability in the face of so much uncertainly.
Please take note of these important upcoming due dates for your Flex Program:
- The Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 End of Year Report is due on November 30th for all Flex programs, please reach out to your Project Officer, Tori, Natalia, Tahleah, or Laura if you have any questions.
- If your program is one of the 8 EMS Supplement awards, you have the FY 2019 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Supplement End of Year Report due on November 29th, please reach out to Tahleah Chappel if you have questions on EMS.
- Please be on the lookout for guidance from me pertaining to your Annual Federal Financial Report (FFR) due January 30, 2021 and how to submit a Prior Approval Carryover Request by March 1, 2021.
We’ve also valued your input and patience as we’ve been working through a major revision for how the Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) data reports are produced. We encourage you and your MBQIP subcontractors to participate in the December 3rd MBQIP Virtual Knowledge Group which will include a focus on the new reports.

I am incredibly thankful to be working with you all.
