On May 31, 2018, the RAND Corporation convened a Technical Expert Panel (TEP) meeting to gather input on analyses that could be conducted to further enhance the Medicare Advantage (MA) and Part D Contract Star Ratings program. The TEP is composed of a diverse group of individuals with expertise across a wide range of disciplines including quality measurement, risk adjustment, statistical methods, and delivery of health care to Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in MA and Part D contracts. The TEP does not replace existing mechanisms to obtain broad stakeholder input regarding enhancements to the Star Ratings program.
