Recently, stakeholders have raised concerns around whether the current star rating methodology appropriately adjusts for the socioeconomic impacts on quality ratings. Studies by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, CMS, and Inovalon have shown that socioeconomic status has a negative impact on quality ratings.
On November 12, CMS released much anticipated proposed changes to the star ratings methodology meant to address these shortcomings. Join us for a one-hour webinar on CMS’ proposed changes.
Panelists will discuss the current star ratings methodology and a description of CMS’ proposed changes, along with questions that stakeholders may want to consider before the December 10 deadline for submitting comments to CMS.
Some of the questions panelists will discuss include
- What are the key issues with the current methodology raised by stakeholders?
- What are the changes proposed by CMS?
- How will these changes impact health plans and the industry more broadly?
Other panelists include Christie Teigland and Joe Plumb of Inovalon.
