On June 2, 2020, HHS published two proposed changes to the Risk Adjustment Data Validation (RADV) protocols for HHS-Operated Risk Adjustment Programs:

  1. The error rate calculation
  2. The application of HHS-RADV results

Beginning with the 2019 benefit year, they are proposing to modify the error rate calculation by doing all of the following:

They are also proposing a “transition from the current prospective application of HHS-RADV results to an approach that would apply HHS-RADV results to the benefit year being audited.” This would begin with the 2021 benefit year.

The deadline for comments on these proposals is July 2, 2020.
