HCFA Moves Up Report Deadline; AAHP Burns


The deadline for submission of adjusted community rate information from potential Medicare+Choice plans is May 1. That has the American Association of Health Plans just a little upset. Why? The deadline had been Nov. 15, 1998.

In a letter to the Health Care Financing Administration, AAHP urged HCFA to delay use of the new reporting requirements until next year. Critical testing of new reporting documents has not been completed, and immediate implementation of use of those documents would be "premature," according to AAHP.

HCFA wanted more time to develop Medicare managed care payment rates.
