The business model for commercial healthcare payers is changing fundamentally in the wake of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A major element of this change involves a shift in the way health insurers that serve the small-group and individual markets are paid, with the government taking premium dollars away from plans that serve lower-risk members and transferring it to plans that serve higher-risk members.

This white paper focuses on best practices that commercial payers are adopting as risk adjustment becomes a critical business process.
