Public Comments Due October 5 on Self-Direction MCO Service Quality Measures

In fall 2015, CMS’s Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP) kicked off a three-year measurement development contract with Mathematica Policy Research, the Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office, and the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services’ Disabled and Elderly Health Programs Group. The IAP portion of the contract entails the development or refinement of a small number of measures in key gap areas related to the IAP program areas. IAP is seeking public comment on a quality measure concept currently under development.  The measure concept is Self-Direction of Services and Supports among People Receiving LTSS through Managed Care Organizations.
