1 2016 HEDIS /QRS/QARR/EES Physician Documentation Guidelines and Administrative Codes This document contains a description of HEDIS and other quality of care measures and includes suggestions and/or recommendations for appropriate coding and physician documentation in care related to HEDIS quality measures. This document is not intended to be a substitute for plan-recommended Clinical Practice Guidelines. Note: Administrative codes and documentation requirements are drawn from 2015 Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) Volume 2 Technical Specifications. Codes and measures listed may not be an exhaustive list and may be subject to change with the release of 2016 HEDIS Volume 2 Technical Specifications.

2 WHAT IS HEDIS? FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS HEDIS, or Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, are a set of performance measurements developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) that assess the quality of care health care organizations provide to their customers. Health Republic is required to report HEDIS and other clinical quality measures to the New York State and federal governments on an annual basis. Information collected for HEDIS reporting includes claims and medical records related to preventative screenings, well visits, treatment for acute and chronic illnesses, access to care, maternity care, behavioral health, and patient satisfaction. The data are used by purchasers and consumers to make informed choices when selecting a plan based on the quality of care provided. WHY ARE MEDICAL RECORDS REQUESTED FOR HEDIS REPORTING? Some HEDIS measures require medical record data for calculation. As a Health Republic/MagnaCare network provider, you may be contacted to provide medical records for HEDIS reporting. HEDIS data collection takes place in the first half of each year (January May). As a participating provider in the Health Republic network, please ensure that your office submits all notes, labs, and consults within the requested timeframes, per the instructions you receive in the request cover letter. Participating provider and network agreements, as well as the member s application for coverage with HRINY, provide for the release of medical record information to HRINY or its designee for quality improvement efforts at no charge. Your cooperation in providing any requested medical records will comply with state and federal laws 1 and will help us improve the quality of care provided and support Health Republic s commitment to providing affordable care that meets the highest nationwide and statewide standards. WHAT IS EES/CAHPS? Many health care organizations, including health plans and provider organizations, use a survey called the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey. The survey is developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and is adopted by the NCQA for use as part of HEDIS reporting. Health plans participating in the Health Insurance Marketplace must conduct a modified CAHPS survey, called the Qualified Health Plan Enrollee Experience Survey (QHP EES). This survey assesses factors including consumer satisfaction with health care, personal doctors, and specialists. 1 New York State Law requires that Health Republic Insurance of New York and its network physicians comply with HEDIS and QARR initiatives, and that Health Republic report the results to the State. The US Department of Health and Human Services has stated that supplying the requested records to us for HEDIS/QRS/QARR reporting does not violate the HIPAA Privacy Rules [45 CFR.501 and 506(c) (4)].
