trick or treat: solving the spooky RAPS/EDS transition challenge

October 26, 2017

Visiting a corn maze on Halloween can be fun, but trying to navigate the transition from RAPS to EDS has been more like a house of horrors for Medicare Advantage plans. Revenue loss has been a major concern for health plans due to the difficulty of submitting data via EDS and getting the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to accept it. This challenge, coupled with the reconciliation of claims and supplemental data, is a prime opportunity to ask, “Is there a better way?”

The answer is yes. RAPS-versus-EDS comparative analysis can help you identify gaps in your data extracts and shine attention on the in-house errors that have big revenue impact.
