Webinar replay: summary and implications of the 2023 Medicare Advantage advance notice

This webinar was held on February 22, 2022. 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released the 2023 Advance Notice of Methodological Changes for Medicare Advantage Capitation Rates and Part C/D Payment Policies, which proposes important changes in plan payments, risk adjustment, Star Ratings, and other key financial and regulatory requirements for 2023.

During this webinar, consultants from Wakely Consulting Group, an HMA Company, provided an overview of the proposed changes, with an emphasis on the likely impact that the new rates and policies will have on Medicare Advantage bids, membership growth, quality, and strategy.
