Trends and Observations

An overall negative trend can be observed from Fiscal Year 2017 – 2019.  This is partially due to CMS raising the performance threshold for several of the QASP PE standards, instituting “critical elements” in its scoring methodology, as well as adding a brand new standard related to provider opt-out affidavits in 2018.  Overall there has been a decrease in performance of 19 percentage points (24% decrease) since 2017.  Every year, except 2018, at least one MAC was in 100% compliance.
