9.15.2020 Controlling High Blood Pressure (CBP) and Comprehensive Diabetes Care (CDC) Do BP readings taken by the member need to meet the member-reported requirements included in General Guideline 39?

No. BPs taken by the member do not need to meet requirements for member-reported data described in General Guideline 39 (collected by a PCP or other specialist while taking the patient’s history). If the BP result is documented in the member’s medical record, it may be used to assess numerator criteria if the BP does not meet any exclusion criteria (bullets at the bottom of page 157 and 195 in HEDIS MY 2020 and MY 2021 Volume 2).
