CMS awards first contracts under QIO program restructuring

Issued By
May 10, 2014

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today awarded two quality improvement organizations five-year contracts to support case review and monitoring activities, which it called the first step in a two-phase restructuring of the QIO program under a new statement of work effective Aug. 1. The new contractors are called Beneficiary and Family-Centered Care QIOs and will be responsible for ensuring consistency in the review process with consideration of local factors important to beneficiaries, CMS said. Livanta LLC of Annapolis Junction, MD, will serve 17 states and two U.S. territories in program areas 1 and 5. KePRO of Seven Hills, OH, will serve the remaining states and Washington, D.C. In July, the agency plans to award five-year contracts to QIOs for data-driven quality initiatives, called Quality Innovation Network and Value, Incentive and Quality Reporting support contractors.
