42 CFR § 425.500 - Measures to assess the quality of care furnished by an ACO for performance years (or a performance period) beginning on or before January 1, 2020.
(a) General. CMS establishes quality performance measures to assess the quality of care furnished by the ACO. If the ACO demonstrates to CMS that it has satisfied the quality performance requirements in this subpart, and the ACO meets all other applicable requirements, the ACO is eligible for shared savings.
(b) Selecting measures.
(1) CMS selects the measures designated to determine an ACO's success in promoting the aims of better care for individuals, better health for populations, and lower growth in expenditures.
(2) CMS designates the measures for use in the calculation of the quality performance standard.
(d) Patient experience of care survey.
(e) Audit and validation of data. CMS retains the right to audit and validate quality data reported by an ACO.
(2) If, at the conclusion of the audit process the overall audit match rate between the quality data reported and the medical records provided under paragraph (e)(1) of this section is less than 80 percent, absent unusual circumstances, CMS will adjust the ACO's overall quality score proportional to the ACO's audit performance.
(f) Failure to report quality measure data accurately, completely, and timely (or to timely correct such data) may subject the ACO to termination or other sanctions, as described in §§ 425.216 and 425.218.
