Kaiser Family Foundation Issues Paper on Medicare Advantage Plans Quality Star Ratings and CMS’ New Demonstration Project for 2012

CMS has proposed a Demonstration project for 2012 which would expand on the importance of Star Ratings for Medicare Advantage carriers.  MA Carriers would be receiving reimbursement increases based on the star ratings and would be able to qualify for bonuses at the 3 star and above levels.

The issue paper looks at the existing ratings and breaks them down in a number of ways (ratings based on type of MA product, like HMO versus PPO, Urban ratings versus Rural ratings, Non-Profit versus For Profit, etc.)

Here is a link to the report.
