The CMS QIO Program is one of the largest federal programs dedicated to improving health quality at the community level. Since Community Health Improvement Week is May 31-June 6, QIO News is dedicating this issue to exploring how the Program works in partnership with patients and families, providers, community organizations and other health care stakeholders to improve the quality of care and life for Medicare beneficiaries.
Community organizations or patient advocates may contact their regional BFCC-QIO for a free presentation on how Medicare beneficiaries can file quality of care complaints or discharge appeals, as well as seek Immediate Advocacy. Presentations will be conducted via webinar or in-person, depending on your location. Contact your BFCC-QIO for details!
