The managers of Colorado’s state-based exchange want to see Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services improve its evaluation system.
CMS is preparing to grade the quality of the public exchanges, and the quality of the plans they’re selling.
CMS has drafted a proposal that calls for it to collect information about 42 measures, including 29 measures of the quality of clinical care and 13 patient satisfaction measures.
Each plan would get a set of three “summary indicator” ratings and one overall rating.
The summary indicator ratings would be for clinical quality management, member experience, and plan efficiency affordability and management.
CMS would express the plans’ summary ratings and the overall ratings using a five-star scale.
