CMS has given itself another year to finalize a proposal to begin using an extrapolation methodology in recovering overpayments from Medicare Advantage organizations. The Trump administration in a November 2018 proposed rule (83 Fed. Reg. 54982, Nov. 1, 2018) said it planned to extrapolate the results of Risk Adjustment Data Validation Audits, starting with 2011 contract-level audits, and not apply a “fee-for-service adjuster” to account for inaccurate diagnosis codes in FFS Medicare data used to calibrate the MA risk adjustment model.
