The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is encouraging QHP issuers and Exchange administrators to review their 2021 Quality Rating System (QRS) preview reports, QRS proof sheets, and QHP Enrollee Survey Quality Improvement Reports on the CMS Marketplace Quality Initiative (MQI) website by September 3.
CMS created the QRS to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare and more easily investigate quality. The 2021 QRS quality ratings and QHP Enrollee Survey results are available for preview from August 23rd at 9am ET through September 3rd at 5pm ET.
QHP issuers and Exchange administrators may review the QRS preview reports, QRS proof sheets, and QHP Enrollee Survey Quality Improvement Reports for their respective reporting units in CMS’ Health Insurance Oversight System Marketplace Quality Module (HIOS-MQM).
Access to HIOS-MQM is required to preview the QRS rating information. See the HIOS-MQM Quick Reference Guide for details about registering and accessing the HIOS-MQM.
Inquiries regarding the preview results should be submitted to the CMS help desk, CMS_FEPS@cms.gov, by September 3, 2021.
