Ceci Connolly comments on risk-adjustment data (Modern Healthcare)

Insurers who do not verify the number of severely ill patients enrolled through the exchanges will not be penalized. The ACA mandated that health plans that receive risk-adjustment payments prove they enroll sicker patients. According to ACHP President and CEO Ceci Connolly, companies do not yet have federal data on the accuracy of their claims, so it is too soon to report on lessons learned.
