Memorandum of Agreement
Beneficiary and Family Centered Care-Quality Improvement Organizations (BFCC-QIOs) review medical services provided to Medicare beneficiaries, including hospital discharge appeals, termination of services appeals, and quality of care complaints. BFCC-QIOs communicate with health care providers to provide information about their medical review activity.
Under federal law, you must have a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with your state’s BFCC-QIO to receive information about medical review activity at your facility. MOAs outline the BFCC-QIO and provider responsibilities during the review process.
You can identify your state’s BFCC-QIO using our interactive map or by referencing the BFCC-QIO listing below.
