by AHIP

March 5, 2018

Last month, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released proposed changes to Medicare Advantage that will impact the 20 million seniors and individuals with disabilities enrolled in the program.

In addition, changes proposed by CMS to the Medicare Advantage risk adjustment model – used to compensate plans for the health status of their members – could have unintended consequences, especially for Medicare-Medicaid ‘dual eligibles.’
