Employer Group REHAB SERVICES CMS is proposing to reduce a contract's Part C or Part D appeal measures Star Ratings for IRE data that are not complete or otherwise lack integrity based on the TMP or audit information. The reduction would be applied to the measure-level Star Ratings for the applicable appeals measures. There are varying degrees of data issues and as such, we are proposing a methodology for reductions that reflects the degree of the data accuracy issue for a contract instead of a one-size fits all approach. The methodology would employ scaled reductions, ranging from a 1-star reduction to a 4-star reduction; the most severe reduction for the degree of missing IRE data would be a 4-star reduction which would result in a measure-level Star Rating of 1 star for the associated appeals measures (Part C or Part D). The data source for the scaled reduction is the TMP or audit data, however the specific data used for the determination of a Part C IRE data completeness reduction are independent of the data used for the Part D IRE data completeness reduction. If a contract receives a reduction due to missing Part C IRE data, the reduction would be applied to both of the contract's Part C appeals measures. Likewise, if a contract receives a reduction due to missing Part D IRE data, the reduction would be applied to both of the contract's Part D appeals measures. We solicit comment on this proposal and its scope; we are looking in particular for comments related to how to use the process we are proposing Start Printed Page 56396in this proposal to account for data integrity issues discovered through means other than the TMP and audits of sponsoring organizations.

Fraud and Abuse COMPLIANCE & QUALITY parent page Science I'm a producer We seek comment on whether this 6-month waiting period would reduce provider burden sufficiently to outweigh the additional case management, clinical contact and prescriber verification that providers may experience if a sponsor believes a beneficiary's access to coverage of frequently abused drugs should be limited to a selected prescriber(s). Comments should include the additional operational considerations for sponsors to implement this proposal.
