Sweepstakes rewards physicians for Stars gap closures

The Humana Close-the-Gaps Sweepstakes will award a total of $560,000 in $1,000 prepaid cards, drawing the names of 35 individual physicians each week for 16 weeks. Winning physician names will be drawn from a sweepstakes pool weekly from Nov. 23, 2015, through March 7, 2016. To be included in the pool, simply complete the necessary eligibility requirements, which are included in the official rules.

Individual physicians will receive one entry for each open Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) Stars measure gap in care closed per individual Humana-covered patient. An eligible physician also may enter by simply sending an email during the entry period asking to register for the sweepstakes and providing his/her name, tax identification number (TIN), national provider identifier (NPI), practice mailing address and phone number. Send the request to TheHumanaClosetheGapSweepstakes@Humana.com.

Entries do not carry over from week to week. Physicians who win begin accumulating entries again in the week following the winning week. The Humana Close-the-Gaps Sweepstakes is in addition to any Humana reward program in which you or your practice may be participating.

For details about your Humana-covered patients with open gaps in care, review the materials in your Stars Quality Report (SQR) mailing. (Some Stars Quality Reports are delivered or faxed to physician practices.)

The 35 weekly winners will receive their $1,000 prepaid cards by mail or personal delivery after each of the drawings.
