Under a proposed rule published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), thousands of Medicare providers and suppliers would have an obligation to provide Medicare beneficiaries with written notice about the right to contact a Quality Improvement Organization to report concerns over quality. According to CMS, the initiative is aimed at improving quality of care for all patients.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published a proposed rule February 2, 2011, which would require most Medicare-participating providers and suppliers to provide Medicare beneficiaries written notice about their right to contact a Medicare Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) with concerns about the quality of care they receive from the provider or supplier. Under current rules, only hospital inpatient Medicare beneficiaries must be provided with information about contacting their state QIO for quality of care issues.
