Group Health Psychological Market Indicators Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City Launches New Initiative to Expand Access to Nutritious Food in Community Currently, Star Ratings for domains are calculated using the unweighted mean of the Star Ratings of the included measures. They are displayed to the nearest whole star, using a 1-5 star scale. We propose to continue this policy at paragraph (b)(2)(ii). We also propose that a contract must have stars for at least 50 percent of the measures required to be reported for that domain for that contract type to have that domain rating calculated in order to have enough data to reflect the contract's performance on the specific dimension. For example, if a contract is rated only on one measure in Staying Healthy: Screenings, Tests and Vaccines, that one measure would not necessarily be representative of how the contract performs across the whole domain so we do not believe it is appropriate to calculate and display a domain rating. We propose to continue this policy by providing, at paragraph (b)(2)(i), that a minimum number of measures must be reported for a domain rating to be calculated.

Terms & Conditions Claim Statements As discussed later in this section, CMS believes that it is challenging to apply the current standardized meaningful difference evaluation (which is applied consistently to all plans) in a manner that accommodates and evaluates important considerations objectively. CMS is concerned that the current evaluation may create unintended consequences related to innovative benefit designs. In addition, CMS's efforts in implementing more sophisticated approaches to consumer engagement and decision-making should help beneficiaries, caregivers, and family members make informed plan choices. For example, in MPF, plan details have been expanded to include MA and Part D benefits and a new consumer friendly tool for the CY 2018 Medicare open enrollment period which will assist beneficiaries in choosing a plan that meets their unique and financial needs based on a set of 10 quick questions.
