2022 Quality Assurance Reporting Requirements (QARR)

January 25, 2023

RE: Clarification #11 for Measurement Year (MY) 2022 Updates

Dear Colleague,

This letter clarifies the Quality Assurance Reporting Requirements (QARR) Technical

Specifications for Measurement Year (MY) 2022 reporting. The Patient Level Detail File for Commercial lines of business includes retired numerators for the Childhood Immunization Status (CIS) measure (Combinations 2,4,5,6,8,9). New York State is only interested in the data for CIS numerators specified on Page (50) of the QARR Technical Specifications. Plans and Auditors can ignore data for the numerators not reported for the Line Of Business. Blanks, 0 or 1 are acceptable values as the state will ignore the columns.

If there are any questions about the above edits, or if you find issues or have concerns with the 2022 Technical Specifications manual or other documents, please email nysqarr@health.ny.gov.
