Make Care Affordable

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services organizes measures in the state health system performance pillar of the Scorecard using the domains defined in the Meaningful Measures initiative. The initiative identifies the highest priority areas for quality measurement and improvement. The measures in this domain focus on making care affordable by optimizing resource use, which helps Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries access the care they need and may lead to better health outcomes.
