CMS has been conducting real-time claims analysis to monitor health status for groups of Medicare beneficiaries in competitive bidding areas (CBAs). Health status monitoring results are shown in files updated on a quarterly basis. On May 17, 2016, we posted monitoring data that shows our efforts have saved the Medicare program money while continuing to ensure access to equipment for all who need it in the non-competitive bidding areas. Specifically that data showed that suppliers in non-competitive bidding areas have continued to accept the new, adjusted DMEPOS payments.
At the time that we posted the data on acceptance of the new, adjusted rates, we indicated that we would soon be furnishing monitoring data on health outcomes for beneficiaries in non-competitive bidding areas. The health outcomes monitoring data are now available.
