News Briefs: CMS Will Release Results From 90 Audits of MA Plans’ Risk Adjustment Data

Settling a lawsuit filed by Kaiser Health News, CMS has agreed to release the results of 90 Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) audits of Medicare Advantage plans for payment years 2011 through 2013, KHN reported. The news outlet in September 2019 filed the suit under the Freedom of Information Act in an effort to make public “vital information” about the estimated $600 million in overpayments the government aims to collect from plans through those completed RADV audits, said KHN. Under the settlement, CMS will share audit spreadsheets showing which medical diagnoses could not be confirmed but will redact the payment amounts. The agency has already sent the first round of records, according to KHN.
