Employer Reporting Updates Planned for 2014
With year end reporting complete for many groups, our Client Consulting department is turning their attention to enhancements for 2014. One area already in development involves transitioning to national standards for medical and drug claim classification. These changes will mean leveraging national expertise and updates, as well as enabling new benchmarking capabilities.
Medical claims will transition from their current Arenas and Treatment Types to Milliman’s Health Cost Guidelines (HCG) Grouper. High level groupings will remain consistent as Inpatient, Outpatient, Physician, Prescription Drugs, and Others, and will divide into more than 100 HCG categories and detail categories to provide granular insight for reporting needs. Pharmacy claims Drug Classes will be transitioning to Medi-Span’s Therapeutic Classification System.
