The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published a Request for Information (RFI) on a Recommended Measure Set for Medicaid-Funded Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS).
The RFI seeks feedback on potential benefits of and challenges that could result from a nationally available set of recommended quality measures for voluntary use by states, managed care organizations, and other entities engaged in the administration and/or delivery of Medicaid-funded home and community-based services (HCBS). CMS is also requesting stakeholder comment on the purpose and organization of the recommended measure set, the criteria used to select measures, and a preliminary draft set of measures for assessing the quality and outcomes of Medicaid-funded HCBS.
Comments should be submitted electronically to HCBSMeasuresRFI@cms.hhs.gov no later than October 19, 2020.
