Complete & accurate coding & documentation post-pandemic is more important than ever as the volume of data has declined dramatically since March of this year. To prevent a cataclysmic fall in risk adjustment performance, and to optimize appropriate reimbursement, plans must work more efficiently and effectively inter-departmentally and with the provider community to ensure Data Quality & CMS compliance. Find out how MA health plan risk adjustment leaders are diligently working on reeducating providers on telehealth guidelines, flagging SDoH conditions, assisting providers on prioritizing member needs, and helping technology-challenged vulnerable members access care, at the Inaugural Medicare Advantage Risk Adjustment & Revenue Management Innovations National Forum.

The role of the risk adjustment department demands attention to constantly changing CMS regulations and market conditions to allow out of the box thinking and lightening speed reactions. And, as the technology landscape evolves, plans are challenged to augment their coding programs with NLP and other AI tools. Hear from top MA health plans to find out how to minimize the impact of the pandemic by preserving quality and sustaining data volume, building strong provider incentive programs and ensuring compliance. This is the only Risk Adjustment & Revenue Management event designed exclusively for the unique needs of MA health plans, with a strong emphasis on actual health plan Best Practice Case Studies, in addition to vendor solutions.
