We anticipate that political and policy developments and dynamics in Washington, D.C. and various state capitals will drive marketplace uncertainty for health plans for the foreseeable future. In this session, we will share analysis and perspectives on how health plans can assess a range of policy and market scenarios, and maintain strategic coherence and operational performance in the face of uncertainty.

CMS is transitioning the calculation of Medicare Advantage (MA) plan risk scores from the Risk Adjustment Processing System (RAPS), where risk adjustment filter rules are applied by health plans, to the Encounter Data System (EDS), where MA plans submit their member encounter claims and CMS applies the filter logic to identify diagnoses eligible for risk adjustment. This session will present the findings of a research collaboration between industry stakeholders that sought to investigate the revenue neutrality of the change in approach. The study findings show that the transition to the new data submission system could have a significant impact on plan risk scores and reimbursement. Speakers will discuss how plan risk scores differ based on using RAPS versus EDS to identify member diagnoses, the potential impact on plan risk adjusted revenue under the proposed transition scenarios, and the overall impact on risk scores using the blended methodology between RAPS and EDS through the transition period.

Over a few short years, bundled payments have gone from a niche payment strategy to a key strategic issue for payers and providers. Medicare has forged the way with bundled payment models, but commercial markets are starting to see movement as well. This payment reform strategy is bringing down costs and improving outcomes, not only in orthopedics but across many high priority clinical areas. This session will explore the state of bundled payments today and where the industry is heading. The speaker will discuss the current Medicare models for bundled payment and the results they are having; the impact increasing commercial engagement with bundled payments will have on the market; and the strategic issues payers and providers face in structuring and managing bundled payment programs.
