Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
With major revenue and competitive positioning at stake, Medicare Advantage and Part D plans must maximize their performance on the crucial Medicare star ratings quality measures. On Jan. 29, some of the nation’s foremost star-ratings experts, including health plan executives and top industry consultants, will lead the latest virtual conference from industry-leading health business information publisher Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS), New Strategies to Maximize Your Medicare Star Ratings. AIS’s virtual conference allows participants to attend a live conference without having to travel to a meeting site. Plus, the registration fee includes a free On-Demand recording of each session, so any agenda items can be reviewed at a later time.
In today’s shifting landscape, strategies used by Medicare Advantage plans to improve their star ratings must evolve constantly, and with CMS granting bonuses to only four- and five-star-rated plans starting in 2015 — along with the other upcoming payment changes — plans must do more with fewer resources. Moreover, average is no longer good enough, since plans that consistently score lower than three stars risk the loss of their contracts altogether.
Split into three sessions, the Jan. 29 virtual conference will provide valuable, practical intelligence and training on topics such as:
- Specific financial, regulatory and methodological changes CMS is making for 2015 ratings and steps plans should take to respond
- Tactical strategies for improving performance on the star ratings system’s most challenging chronic care measures
- Proven strategies for tackling drug-related stars measures like medication reviews, adherence measures and accuracy of pricing data
Additionally, each session will conclude with generous time allocated to answering individual questions.
