CMS seeks public comment on defining QIO service areas

Homecare Insider, May 13, 2013

On May 2, 2013, CMS issued a request for information (RFI) notice seeking comment about how they can best organize the national cadre of Medicare Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) contractors.

CMS is planning on using the comments from this notice to inform future QIO-related acquisitions.

CMS is looking for provider opinion about four potential options that they may use to divide work among a varying number of QIO contractors into service areas (jurisdictions or regions) that are focused on quality-improvement-related work only. They are also seeking fresh new ideas about other options we could consider in organizing QIO contractors.

Comments are requested via email by 4:00 pm ET on Friday, May 31, 2013.
