Three Gorman Health Group Experts to Provide Insight on 2014 Star Ratings for MA and Part D
Date:10/24/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

The annual release of new Medicare Advantage and Part D star-ratings data by CMS is a treasure trove of competitive information plans and their partners can use to improve their future star-ratings performance. In the Oct. 29 co-hosted Atlantic Information Services and Gorman Health Group webinar, “Inside the 2014 Star Ratings for MA and Part D: Trends and Their Implications,” industry experts will take an in-depth look at the 2014 star ratings and their implications.

Three Gorman Health Group experts — Deb Devereaux, senior vice president of pharmacy services; Aaron Eaton, chief development officer; and Jane Scott, senior vice president of clinical services — will provide guidance to participants for planning their organization’s short- and long-term stars strategies by answering questions such as:

  • What happened to plans’ average star ratings, and why?
  • Are scores on medication adherence and osteoporosis management still weak? If so, what can be done about them?
  • Have regional disparities lessened, and what might CMS do to deal with those disparities on stars in the future?
  • How did MA Special Needs Plans fare in the new ratings? What new measures could be in store for them in 2015 and beyond?
  • Which stars measures will CMS probably “retire” for 2015, and why?
  • What is CMS likely to do on new stars measures in areas such as comprehensive medication reviews and increased four-star thresholds related to the Million Hearts cardiovascular care initiative?
  • Will CMS proceed for 2015 with its earlier proposal — that it subsequently decided to delay — to use individual-measure scores rather than the star ratings for those scores in calculating plans’ summary and overall star ratings?
  • Will CMS permanently halt the setting of new four-star thresholds, and, if so, what does that means for the likelihood of plans getting bonuses in 2015 and beyond?
