QI 4 requires organizations to collect data from all sources of member complaints and appeals. This includes UM coverage appeals addressed in UM 8-UM 9 and noncoverage appeals addressed in RR 2.
Note: Data collected and analyzed prior to December 15, 2017,will be accepted as meeting the requirement, even if not all types of appeals are included. Data collected and analyzed on or after this date must comply with the requirement stated in the FAQ.
If your organization collected and analyzed data prior to December 15, 2017, and interpreted the requirement as applying to only one type of appeal, notify the surveyor at the start of the survey so the misinterpretation does not affect scoring.
