Bright Spots in Healthcare

Jun 24, 2022

Risk adjustment is much more than a regulatory requirement for Medicare Advantage plans –  it can improve the quality of care by providing an accurate picture of each member’s health status and ensuring each member receives the right interventions and treatment. 


Providers play an important role in risk adjustment, too. An engaged partnership between health plans and providers is vital to ensure beneficiaries receive valuable benefits. 


Our panel of experts from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, CommuniCare Health Centers, Priority Health, SelectHealth and Vatica Health will share successful strategies and best practices for payers and providers to work in partnership to close gaps in care, achieve better clinical and financial performance, and support value-based care. Hear both payer and provider perspectives on building a successful relationship.
