As the unwinding of the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement continues, both states and the federal government are tracking and monitoring the impacts of the resumption of eligibility redeterminations and disenrollments. Given the time-lags and caveats of CMS data, many states are publishing their own state data dashboards. To date, 46 states (including the District of Columbia) have released unwinding data in either an interactive dashboard or static pdf format, or are making public their required CMS Monthly Unwinding Data reports. This expert perspective includes an interactive map with links to state reporting, as well as a table tracking the unwinding indicators and disaggregated data that states are reporting on. SHVS will continue to update this EP as more states publish their unwinding data.
State Health and Value Strategies and Bailit Health
The Buying Value website, which is supported and maintained by State Health and Value Strategies in partnership with Bailit Health, hosts a suite of resources to support states interested in designing a measure set that will align with other priority national measure sets, as well as those that may already be in use in a state or region.
The Buying Value Measure Selection Tool includes major national measure sets as of March 2022 and their component measures that are applicable for assessing primary care practices, hospitals and ACOs. It is designed to assist states in aligning measure sets. The Buying Value Measure Selection Tool was initially developed on behalf of the former Buying Value Project, an initiative of private and public healthcare purchasers founded to promote and facilitate value-based purchasing.
The Buying Value Benchmark Repository is a database of non-HEDIS and modified HEDIS measures in use by state purchasers and regional health improvement collaboratives and associated performance levels. The spreadsheet is updated periodically as state purchasers and regional health improvement collaboratives submit additional measures and associated performance data. The resource, along with an online forum, allows states and regional health improvement collaboratives to identify and maximize use performance measures that best fit their needs.
