CMS has established a new structure for the Quality Improvement Organization Program that separates QIO functions into two major categories – medical case review and quality improvement work.

Medical case review will be performed by Beneficiary Family Centered Care Quality Improvement Organizations (BFCC-QIOs).

Quality improvement and technical assistance will be performed by Quality Innovation Network Quality Improvement Organizations (QIN-QIOs).

Both types of contracts cannot be held by the same organization. Changes also include a multi-state regional approach that replaces single-state QIO contracts for quality improvement work and extends contract cycles from three to five years.
