Response to NQF Draft Report “Strengthening the Core Set of Healthcare Quality Measures for Adults Enrolled in Medicaid, 2018”

August 1, 2018

Today, the National MLTSS Health Plan Association submitted public comments to the National Quality Forum (NQF) in response to a request for stakeholder input regarding recommended changes to the Adult Core Set of quality measures for Medicaid enrollees.  The Association supports NQF’s recommendation to include measures of home- and community-based services in the Adult Core Set, in the form of the NQF #2967 CAHPS HCBS composite measure in the Adult Core Set.   The Association also encourages NQF to look beyond the CAHPS HCBS survey to identify metrics that address other quality concerns that matter to LTSS consumers and advocates.
