Health Care Reform Briefing Paper

"Risk Adjustment: Health Calculus for the Reform Environment" from Milliman, Inc. Risk adjustment, a method for adjusting health care reform. To harness the true potential of such a powerful tool, critical stakeholders like government agencies, health plans, provider organizations and employer groups must understand how to properly select, implement and evaluate risk-adjustment models. Using the appropriate risk-adjustment methodologies in the correct context will contribute to more accurate health care pricing, more efficient utilization and improved quality of care.
