The face of reimbursement is changing and involves risk-adjustment. Risk adjustment is an essential mechanism used in health insurance programs to account for the overall health and expected medical costs of each individual enrolled in a health plan. Accurate documentation of diagnoses by clinicians is a critical component of the risk adjustment process.
The agenda includes:
Brief history of risk-adjustment
What is risk-adjustment?
How risk-adjustment will affect providers and practices
A closer look at chronic conditions
Any handouts for the meeting will be available in the Attachments section of this booking week of the meeting.
