On October 30, 2008, CMS is hosting a Special Open Door Forum to discuss the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Beneficiary Protection Program (BPP). The BPP incorporates several QIO functions, including quality of care reviews, reviews of beneficiary complaints, utilization reviews, EMTALA reviews, and appeals of discharges from various provider settings, among others. The purpose of this forum is to gain insight regarding improvements needed to the regulations governing the QIO program.
