Medicare to open its claims data
from Health Data Management
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has issued a proposed rule to make available standardized extracts of Medicare claims data to measure the performance of providers and suppliers. The rule, covering Medicare Parts A, B and D, is mandated under the Affordable Care Act. Qualified entities may receive the data for the sole purpose of evaluating providers and suppliers and to generate specified public reports, according to the proposed rule. The entities must pay a fee equal to the cost of making the data available, and must combine it with claims data from other sources when conducting evaluations.
