Planning for the Future
 Healthcare Reform will require significant change to Medicare
Advantage plans transforming them into an integrated health
delivery system concentrating on quality of care outcomes
within the next 1-5 years.
 What are the consequences??
 There will be pressure to correctly screen, document and perform
precise coding or chronic disease along with exceeding quality
performance measures related to HDIS and national survey
instruments (HOS and CAHPS).
 The federal government will essentially be paying for quality
outcomes based on STARs/HEDIS ratings.

WHAT ARE THE CMS STARs??
 CMS created the 5-STAR Quality Rating System for Medicare
Advantage plans to compare Medicare Advantage plans more
easily, and to help identify areas about which they may want to
ask questions.
 The STARS are a quality rating system that gives each plan a
rating of between 1 and 5 stars. Plans with 5 stars are considered
to be highly above average in quality, and plans with 1 star are
considered to be very below average in quality.

WHAT ARE THE CMS
STARS?? (CONTINUED)
 STAR RATINGS are CMS Ratings for Part C and D Medicare Plans
 The original purpose of STAR ratings was to enable Medicare
beneficiaries to compare quality among Medicare Advantage Plans on
the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder (MPDPF).
 As part of Health Care Reform, CMS will begin a quality bonus
payment in 2012 for MA Plans based on the Five Star Ratings.
 In the fall of 2006, CMS posted Plan ratings based on a 3 star scale
 For 2008, Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), CMS introduced a 5 Star
scale. [5=highly above average; 1=very below average]
