Health Equity for Government: New Rules and Data — ICYMI

On this week's episode, Optum's Mylynn Tufte and Meta Kreiner discuss with the ICYMI crew how upcoming changes in federal quality measures for Medicaid and CHIP will impact state governments.



Achieving health equity — ensuring everyone has access to resources and care wherever and whenever they need it — requires efforts to address avoidable inequalities, historical and contemporary injustices and social determinants of health.

Starting in 2010, the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMS) released sets of health-care quality measures designed to help states assess children and adults' access to and quality of health care. These "core sets" have been the driver for quality and health equity metrics for state Medicaid programs.

Until now, state reporting on these measure sets has been voluntary. Beginning in federal FY 2024, however, state reporting of both the Child and Adult Core Measurement Sets will become mandatory, bringing new challenges in getting the data together.

Optum's Mylynn Tufte and Meta Kreiner spoke with Dustin Haisler and Joe Morris about the new CMS measurement sets, the technology components that should be in place to support these reporting requirements and what the future looks like when implemented correctly.
