Medicare Health Risk Assessments

Medicare Health Risk Assessment  

CMS is considering excluding from risk adjusted payment any diagnosis data collected from MA enrollee Health Risk Assessments which are not confirmed by a subsequent clinical encounter.  

CMS planned to collect flags in 2013 of these risk assessments.
Based on comments received, CMS is delaying the collection of flags until calendar year 2014.  

Further determination about exclusion of these data will be published in the 2015 Advance Notice
