Data Sharing Agreement
Data Sharing Agreement Documents
The Information Exchange Agreement establishes terms, conditions, safeguards, and procedures governing states’ access to Medicare data for the purpose of supporting dually eligible beneficiaries.
The State Data Resource Center (SDRC) hosted a webinar to discuss the release of the new, streamlined Information Exchange Agreement (IEA) and Data Request Attestation (DRA) documents for sharing and exchanging Medicare data with state Medicaid agencies for the dually eligible population. The Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office revised the IEA and DRA to support merging authorization of state requests for five separate data exchanges that support dually eligible beneficiaries. Those five exchanges are:
Medicare-Medicaid Data Sharing project
Enrollment Database Query File
MMA File Exchange
Territory Beneficiary Query File
State Buy-in File Exchange
SDRC specifically covered the changes from the previous forms and processes and how this new agreement will decrease the maintenance and annual submissions required to CMS. In addition, SDRC covered the other additional benefits of this upcoming data-sharing opportunity.
SDRC has collected frequently asked questions about the new, streamlines IEA and DRA documents. These questions are organized into categories within a PDF document. If you have questions that aren’t answered here, be sure to contact us.
