10.15.2019 “Unknown” SES Category The SES stratification guidance in HEDIS 2020 Volume 2 indicates that the “Unknown” category may be used for only Puerto Rico plans or if the auditor approves a small number of unassigned members. Is there a specific number of Unknown members a plan is allowed to report?

Except for plans in Puerto Rico, which report all members in the “Unknown” category, it is expected that the member count in this category will be at or below 1%. If more than 1% of eligible members are assigned to the “Unknown” category, the plan must work with the auditor to identify why members are being categorized as “Unknown.”
