for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) identify the
reporting requirements for Medicare Advantage
Organizations (MAOs)

which began with measurement year 2010
• Specific data reports must be validated by an
independent data validation contractor
• CMS stipulated the requirements for the data validation
contractor
• Both PSRx and MetaStar meet all CMS requirements for
an independent experienced data validation contractor
