Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Medicare Quality of Care Complaint Form; Use: Since 1986, Quality Improvement Organizations (QIO) have been responsible for conducting appropriate reviews of written complaints submitted by beneficiaries about the quality of care they have received. In order to receive these written complaints, each QIO has developed its own unique form on which beneficiaries can submit their complaints. CMS has initiated several efforts aimed at increasing the standardization of all QIO activities, and the development of a single, standardized Medicare Quality of Care Complaint Form beneficiaries can use to submit complaints is a key step towards attaining this increased standardization. The Medicare Quality of Care Complaint Form has been revised to improve its content, in order to provide clarity and support to beneficiaries. Section two of the form was updated to replace the Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) with the current Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI), a randomly generated number that replaced the SSN-based HICN. The information page of the form was revised to provide clear instruction as to how to complete the form and the implication of not providing certain requested information.
