      EVENT DETAILS
      Using Encounter Data in Medicare Advantage Risk Adjustment

      The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has collected encounter data from Medicare Advantage plans since 2012 and has previously announced plans to use that data to recalibrate the Medicare Advantage risk adjustment model. This policy change would require The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to address many policy, technical, and operational issues before implementation. To explore these issues, the Urban Institute and the American Action Forum recently convened a roundtable of leading national experts from academia, industry, and the actuarial community. Join us in a discussion of the summit’s main findings, as presented in an issue brief by researchers from the Urban Institute and the American Action Forum, to be released in tandem with the event. Speakers include: Bowen Garrett, Senior Fellow, Health Policy Center, Urban Institute Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President, American Action Forum Gretchen Jacobson, Associate Director, Program on Medicare Policy, Kaiser Family Foundation Tom Kornfield, Vice President, Medicare Policy, America’s Health Insurance Plans Thomas McGuire, Professor of Health Economics, Department of Health Care Policy, Harvard University Stephen Zuckerman, Vice President, Health Policy Center, Urban Institute Lunch will be available at 11:30 a.m., and the program will begin promptly at 12:00 p.m. For inquiries regarding this event, please contact events@urban.org. Support for this project is provided by Anthem Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company. For more information on the Urban Institute’s funding principles, go to urban.org/fundingprinciples.
