Request for Information

[27 Pa.B. 5840]

   The Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council (Council) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) in response to the following Motion unanimously adopted by the Council on September 4, 1997: ''to assess the costs, administrative burden and benefits of replacing the MediQual mandate with an alternative severity adjustment methodology that considers the cost burden to data suppliers and increases the relevancy, accuracy, timeliness and usefulness of PHC4 data collection, analysis and reporting.'' The purpose of the RFI is to obtain information on risk adjustment/severity adjustment systems that would allow the Council to analyze the performance, reliability, operational cost, and financial viability of potential systems with regard to meeting the Council's risk adjustment/severity adjustment requirements. Council staff will review the responses to this Request for Information as part of a larger assessment of severity adjustment systems and make recommendations to the Council.

   Copies of the Request for Information are available from the Health Care Cost Containment Council, 225 Market Street, Suite 400, Harrisburg, PA 17101, (717) 232-6787. The deadline for responses to the RFI is December 15, 1997.
