This measure reports the total number of days it took to review and approve states’ managed care base capitation rates and capitation rate amendments. CMS conducts actuarial reviews of these rates and amendments as part of an approval process. CMS often sends questions to states and requests additional information as part of the reviews. The total time of the review has two parts: (1) the time it takes CMS to conduct the review and (2) the time it takes states to answer questions and provide additional information.

This measure includes both parts of the review – CMS review time and states’ time to answer questions and provide additional information. The number of days for the two parts of the total review time are here: CMS Time and State Time.
