Medicare Advantage plans use Risk Adjustment Factor (RAF) scores to determine patient care expenses. The RAF is therefore a benchmark that enables the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to estimate future spending. With higher RAF scores, the amount Medicare pays Medicare Advantage plans for patient care also increases. Ultimately the goal is to improve patient outcome with reduced costs. Risk adjustment can also affect physician income. More recently, Medicare is using the HCC model to allocate costs for patients in Medicare Accountable Care Organizations.
