Researchers examined data for beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Advantage in 2019. They found that half of MA beneficiaries had a health risk assessment in that year, and 1 in 5 of those who had an assessment had their risk score inflated based on the diagnoses found in the assessment.

Capping the extent to which health risk assessments can be used in risk scores could save the federal government between $4.5 billion and $12.3 billion each year, the researchers said.
