HFMA's Comment Letter to CMS on Hospital Value-Based Purchasing

HFMA submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the weighting of the HCAHPS domain within the CMS Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program.

HFMA submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the weighting of the HCAHPS domain within the CMS Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program.

HFMA's comments request CMS:

  • Reduce the current HCAHPS weighting until a better understanding of how acuity and regional differences impact HCAHPS scores.
  • Conduct a patient-level study that correlates HCAHPS scores to patient acuity, region, and community economic factors to better understand the relationship between these variables and the scores.
