SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Dec 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act) (Pub. L. 111–148). Section 2701 of the Affordable Care Act added new section 1139B to the Social Security Act (the Act); section 1139B(a) of the Act now mandates that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) identify and publish for public comment a recommended initial core set of health quality measures for Medicaid eligible adults. Section 1139B(b) of the Act, as added by section 2701 of the Affordable Care Act, requires that a recommended initial core set be published for public comment by January 1, 2011, and that an initial core set be published by January 1, 2012. In addition, the Affordable Care Act mandates that HHS should complete the following actions —By January 1, 2012: • Establish a Medicaid Quality Measurement Program to fund development, testing, and validation of emerging and innovative evidencebased measures. —By January 1, 2013: • Develop a standardized reporting format on the core set and procedures to encourage voluntary reporting by the States. —By January 1, 2014: • Annually publish recommended changes to the initial core set that shall reflect the results of the testing, validation, and consensus process for the development of adult health quality measures. —By September 30, 2014: • Collect, analyze, and make publicly available the information reported by the States as required in section 1139B(d)(1) of the Act. Additionally, the statute requires the initial core set recommendation to consist of existing adult health quality measures that are in use under public and privately sponsored health care coverage arrangements or are part of reporting systems that measure both the presence and duration of health insurance coverage over time and that may be applicable to Medicaid-eligible adults. II. Method for Determining Proposed Initial Core Set of Adult Health Quality Measures The Affordable Care Act parallels the requirement under title IV of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (Pub. L. 111–3) to identify and publish a recommended initial core set of quality measures for children in Medicaid and the Children’s PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 82397 Health Insurance Program. A similar process was used to identify the proposed initial core set of adult health quality measures. To facilitate an evidence-based and transparent process for making recommendations, the National Advisory Council of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) created a subcommittee (the Subcommittee) for identifying quality measures for Medicaid-eligible adults. The Subcommittee consisted of State Medicaid representatives, health care quality experts, and representatives of health professional organizations and associations. The Subcommittee held a public meeting October 18th and 19th and considered public comments. The Subcommittee’s advice was reported to the Chair of AHRQ’s National Advisory Council and considered further by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and staff in the Office of the Secretary of HHS prior to this public posting. The initial core set was developed by reviewing measures from nationally recognized sources, including measures currently endorsed by the National Quality Forum (NQF), measures submitted by Medicaid medical directors, measures currently in use by CMS, and measures suggested by the Co-Chairs and members of the Subcommittee of AHRQ’s National Advisory Council. In prioritizing measures, the Subcommittee considered the needs of adults (ages 18 and older) enrolled in Medicaid. To help guide the discussion of priority health needs within the adult populations covered by Medicaid, the Subcommittee was divided into four workgroups—Maternal/Reproductive Health, Overall Adult Health, Complex Health Care Needs, and Mental Health and Substance Use. The workgroups considered potential measurement opportunities across the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) eight domains of quality: Safe, timely, effective, efficient, access, patient and family centeredness, care coordination, and infrastructure capabilities for health care. The Subcommittee also considered how health care equity and value (also from the IOM) could be reflected in the initial measurement set. Ultimately, the Subcommittee used the following three criteria in voting on the recommended measures for the core set: • The scientific acceptability of measure properties. • Feasibility of use by Medicaid. • Importance to Medicaid programs. The Subcommittee also considered whether the measures were currently used in other Medicaid quality E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1
