Risk Adjustment

Risk-adjusted revenue is increasing across government and commercial lines of business.

A lack of an integrated revenue integrity program can have a significant financial impact across your risk-adjusted payment programs.

30% of Medicare enrollees are in the risk-adjusted Medicare Advantage> program1

The 8M Marketplace enrollees are all part of risk-adjustment programs2

24 states have moved their managed Medicaid programs to risk-adjusted models3

Industry experts expect that by 2016, 77% of all Medicaid enrollees will be part of a managed care program (~44M covered lives).

Move from a compliance to a revenue-management mindset:
i.e. – EDPS contributing to 10% of revenue and growing

Deploy prospective and retrospective programs in conjunction with provider engagement programs

Invest in resources to build a strong internal audit program to support RADV and IVA audits

Ensure accurate coding of claims to reflect clinically accurate population risk

Work with health plans to ensure reimbursement models are aligned with risk adjustment programs

Higher levels of risk require more detailed and actionable analytics on data submitted to CMS and states
