Claim Settlement, Medicare, and Medicare Set Asides

On May 5, 2016, the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced a program to release updated data to increase transparency in the Medicare program. CMS posted utilization and payment public use data for researchers. Additionally on May 23, 2016, CMS provided a technical alert for a list of International Codes of Diseases (ICD) that will be excluded for Mandatory Insurer Reporting for Non Group Health Plans as of January 02, 2017.

Last year, $130 million was allocated to the National Institute of Health (NIH) to build a national, large-scale research participant group to study precision medicine for all diseases. This year, the first step is to build a national research group of one million or more U.S. participants.
